Studio Construction

Yankee Ingenuity!

I had to restretch the carpet in the entry to my studio (in front of the new solid core door) so I called the tool rental place for a knee kicker. They wanted $15 for a one day rental! Unfortunately, they wouldn’t rent it out for a few hours (or 15 minutes, which is all I need it for). So I got to thinking. This thing is actually pretty simple: it’s a flat bed with sharp nails connected to a long pole for leverage. Hey, I can make that! So twenty minutes later I had my makeshift knee kicker and the carpet was duly stretched over the new nail strip. Halfway through the process I couldn’t help but grin at my creativity. Clever me. 🙂
