The Coping Saw
The first time I used a coping saw was in 7th or 8th grade woodshop class for making a Colonial style candle holder. Before that moment I had only cut wood in a straight line, well mostly straight. I thought it was so cool that I could give wood a shape and with a little sandpaper make it look good. So today I went to North Park Hardware on University Ave and bought myself a Coping Saw for $9.98. I took it home and made the simple yet practical item you see in the photos. It is a support board for the wooden rod in my daughter’s closet which spans eight feet and tries to hold the 500 pounds of clothes that hang on it. Placed in the middle this should help the cause.
