Level Shelf

I don't collect many things and when I do, I keep the collection small because I just don't want an overwhelming amount stuff.

While unpacking (yes, still 8 months later) some boxes last week I discovered my wind-up alarm clock collection.

I haven't seen this collection in awhile because I had put it away about a year or so before we sold our house.  I decided it was time to display it again.

I took another favorite of mine that I started loosely "collecting" a few years ago, an old level, and in about five minutes I had the perfect place for my clocks.

I hung it under my large clock that hangs on the wall near the library.

I used two small hinges I had to hang the shelf, securing them to the level first and then the wall.  Yes, I drilled into this old level because it is a broken old level, which to "real" collectors, make it undesirable.

Broken or not, I love old levels

This one has an S stamped on it.

My new shelf is perfect for my small clock collection.

What do you collect?

  1. That's a very interesting display. I wonder what the S stands for?

  2. Thanks! My guess is the S was the owner's last initial, but I also was thinking Stanley tools??
