MONSTERS IN YOUR TOOL CHEST (Jul, 1954)
MONSTERS IN YOUR TOOL CHEST
By Barnett Fowler
DON’T ASK ME WHY, but I took these pictures. And now, to cap it all, I’m submitting them, in case your readers might be interested. Tools can’t talk back, and maybe it’s just as well. However, mute as they are, tools make fine animal crackers if they’re touched up with a spot of paint and posed just right. Pliers and clothesline tighteners, hinges and lawn sprinklers can become pleasant little “monsters” that will pose willingly for your camera. We even converted an old furnace damper control into a moose or a strange little creature with an upturned nose, depending upon how you look at him. Almost any tool or piece of junk can be made into an odd being of one kind or another. Best of all. it’s fun for kids as well as adults. Why not open your tool chest and try it yourself?
