My dad delights in building me things that save me time & keep me organized.
Whenever I make jewelry, I typically dump the bags of jump rings onto my work station & then have to hunt around for the right size every time I need one. This mess drives him batty so he dreamt up a jump ring organizer.The idea behind this organizer is that I thread jump rings onto it with the stick & then load up the dowels with the rings.
Because I keep tools in both hands, I’ll be able to remove the rings one at a time as needed.
Notice how he drilled a hole to store the stick? I think the stick needs a sharper point for scooping up rings but he thought I might hurt myself if I had one. HeeHee
After loading it with rings, I realize the second dowel is too thick for the jump rings it’s meant for.
We realized it would be nice to attach/detach it from my bracelet building tool aka Jake’s
He wants to make me four, one for each of the color jump rings I use.
After living with us on and off for 7 months, today he moved back home to Kearney. His leaving makes me blue.
I LOVE having him around. Next time he comes over he’ll bring the improved version as well as new ideas he has for me.
This afternoon I made a pot of chili to send home with him & I said, “text me when you get there”. Not all dads
text & build things for their kids, so I completely realize how lucky I am.
Love you dad. Always have, always will.
