Default Offset Turned Doorstop

I found designs for turning door stops, but wanted one a bit easier to use than what I found from several in depth searches on line. This is what I came up with.

These can be made from 2x4's, 6's and 8's.

Details for turning your own [offset] door stops can be seen on my Instructables page at:

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

Kelly those are definitely unique.

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.

Nice, but too fancy for me. If I wanted a door stop, I'd just do it the old fashioned way - use a big rock.

Interesting texture on the handles, Kelly. How do you get that? Spank it with a wire brush?

Theo, I prefer old insulators from hydro poles.

Yeah, but then you've got to climb the pole, unfasten the wires, get the insulator free, than climb down the pole, holding the insulator, then get away without getting caught. A rock is so much easier.

Just stab it a bunch of times with a Dremel type tool, without worrying about the pattern and you're there.

If the rest of us can do it, Jote, so can you.

Old people don't like bending over, and those stop handless stick out about far enough to trip on. How about something with a long pole sticking straight up? No-Bend door stops, or label them Dover stops (no Ben Dover stop).
