Incense Process Fig. 1

Incense

I had been burning incense between the bricks in our wall for weeks, allowing the ash to dust the floor. That got old. So I built this little shelf out of a soy sauce dish, a wire coat hanger, friction and gravity.

Very creative, precise, beautiful, and ultimately so practical. I have used clothes hanger wire as often as duct tape...an untapped resource!

Mick,

Thanx. I totally agree. Wire coat hangers are an incredibly versatile material. I've used them to repair countless toilets, the occasional car hood, and more than one modular shelving system. My dad favors them as the solution to a dangling muffler.

The wire is ideal for impromptu tools as well, it's easily heated and hammered, easily cut, easily bent. No kit is complete without a few well-worn custom tools.

Really, I put hanger wire up there with bailing wire when it comes to the duct tape factor.

Sorry to be a pedant (again) but shouldn't that be baling wire?
