That one was already in the plan, but this was a "I hadn't seen anyone else do it and I have a lathe and have to justify it" thing.

Oh, and I like the name.

The reason I have what you want is, I never lent it out before.

Scraps are a myth.

Or a hook and eye. I've seen that - long ago tho, not recently.

I'm a leader of our senior group and we have had to adjust a lot to accommodate our older and infirm members. Canes and walkers are an awkward part of life for those members and even getting through doors is a problem for a few.

The more I do, the less I accomplish.

I could actually get along without a cane, if need be, but boy are they ever handy for going up and down steps, hooking something off a tall shelf in the store or reaching to the back of a shelf. And, of course, whacking someone.
And, I do admit, really nice to have one when the back and/or knees start acting up and can stop and lean on it for a minute; also for helping keep my balance at times. Doors I have no problem with, just lean on one and fall thru. But, as easy as that is, there always seems to be someone who waits and holds the door for me. I mean, how hard is it to push on a door? Almost as irritating to me as when someone thanks me for my service, but I just say thanks and move on. I don't ever see myself using a walker tho. If it ever gets to that stage I figure a power chair, with a Harley V-twin for power.
