Some men buy their wives flowers. But today Andy bought me… dowel rods! I have to admit I’m overly excited about these dowel rods. But that’s because I’ve been designing handmade chains, and a nice selection of dowel rods makes the whole thing possible.
You see, to make handmade chain, you wrap wire around and around something round. Dowel rods are great for this. Then you slide the coil off, saw through it lengthwise, and magically you have a ton of little circles. Solder them all together and you have a handmade chain. And now that I have dowel rods in all these sizes, I can make pretty much anything I can dream up.
Isn’t he the best?
Yeah, OK, you’re right. I’m maybe slightly too excited about these dowel rods…
