Letter To The Editor

Sir: It is indeed a shame what our country has come to. I refer to these foam gaskets I recently purchased. They are black, 1-1/2" OD x 1" ID x 3/16" thick, very dense and spongy. I have found them to be excellent vibration dampeners in various mechanical devices in my home and shop. But why did they cost me so little? This low price is an outrage that I worry could lessen the value placed on these fine products by the youth of today. The city council should investigate this matter. -name withheld

Sooo Trading Spaces®

Using these 2-1/8" x 5" dia shapes can be a designer's challenge, but they are extremely cool! The flattened spheres have a dazzling deep rosé -- or maybe light merlot -- metallic finish, and a pattern of concentric circles on one side. Each opens to reveal (6) dividers, a divine design that lets you use them as segmented, decorative storage boxes but gives them the strength to be what they are -- furniture feet for a modern chair or sofa. (They're made of the same heavy plastic as many of our replacement wheels, and each comes with a 2-1/8" long x 5/16"-8 hex bolt that fits through the molded center. Handy if you decide to attach 4 or 5 dozen to your family room wall!) We can hear it now. "Honey, while you were out I decided to spruce up the place...."

CELESTIAL INSPIRATION

The planets. You can own them. These wood balls with holes drilled in them (but not through them) were meant to be planets and moons for a solar system model. Do it yourself. You and your kids will learn a lot more than if you bought a kit that does all the thinking for you. Some balls are painted bright colors, some are varnished natural wood. Most have at least one 1/4" hole, some have smaller holes. They could also be joints and/or finials for some kind of dowel construction. Nothing to stop you from drilling new holes for a truly custom project.
