Well, I've been "promoting" the use of old wooden vises as decor in my home so why not stay on the "tool trend". I saved this old, rustic level of my father's and decided to finally put it to use. I like the unique star cut-outs on each end and wonder about their significance. It is a nice addition to the repurposed milk can and wooden boat implement in this living room's corner.
I had a few other ideas so it may find a new home.. I placed it long-ways down the center of my "new" kitchen table, setting it upright so you see the star detail. It created a cool center element of rustic appeal on the wooden table top. I also thought it would look neat placed or over a doorway, like an architectural, decorative feature. The tabletop placement was my favorite, so when I grow tired of the wooden bowl of pods (see the table pics in previous posts), perhaps I'll introduce it.
