Default Mixing skills.

Hi, guys.

My wife wanted to cover the the frame of the laundry room since, in her opinion, it looked so ugly. She asked to buy a curtain hanger for a curtain she´d make this weekend. I told to her "Ok, my dear. I´ll make the curtain hanger" She used her sewing skills and I, of course mine ones.

Here are the final results.

As always Alexis that is nicely done.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Alexis, this is such a good idea. You don't normally think of the curtain rod and brackets being a complement to the curtains. Your use of different woods made it beautiful. I'm going to use the idea. Well done!

It seems I never finish what I

Nice project to blend your wife's sewing skills and your woodworking skills.

Hi, Jim.

That was an idea from my wife. She asked me to combine the wall tiles color with the fabric and the wood. The brackets are made out of saman, a brown local wood.


BTW, something went wrong when I attached the files. Normally, I put them in a logical sequence but, in this post I dragged all of them together and they were attached randomly.

Thanks a lot for your comments.
