Unsunk Screws Are Handy As Hanging Hooks

Screws.jpg When assembling a bookshelf for the spare room recently, I could not get some of the screws to go all the way in (and didn't want to try finishing the task with a drill lest the wood split). However, what looked like an annoying consequence of buying a cheap shelf package actually turned out to be an unexpected boon. The jutting-out screw is ideal for hanging a coat hanger on, giving the room a useful extra place to store coats, or somewhere to hang shirts that are drying on their hangers.

    However, what looked like an annoying consequence of buying a cheap shelf package actually turned out to be an unexpected boon ...

    It gave you enough half backed material to hap hazardly piece together a mediocre life hacker article with advice of dubious merit.

    Whats next ? The benefits of a broken window as a cheap alternative to air conditioning !

    What's next? In the case of this reply, a quick trip to the spell checker, methinks . . .

    Poking fun at Sonny's spelling doesn't change the fact that this post is essentially "ZOMG! If you have something sticking out of a wall you can hang stuff on it!!!!"

    Up next: "Flat surfaces - Not just something to stare at, also handy to put things on."

    I'm guessing there's no Mrs Angus Kidman.

    Publishing being what it is, I'd be very surprised if every post appealed to every single reader, and I'm happy to take criticisms as they come, in whatever form. But how any deductions about my personal life are justified on the basis of a single post is quite frankly beyond me.

    I think a better idea would be to take out the screws and find a screw-in hook of similar dimensions. This would prevent you inavitably snagging yourself on the screws, would be able to hold more gear and look a whole lot more like something you wanted to design rather then a fortunate mistake.
