Kim Schoenberger - ALaW 2010 - RSTUV

I'm getting in early this month with my letters for May...


R - is best to describe in two parts; the left part of R is a rusted bolt and welded onto the right, is a rusted metal wall bracket / hook, liked those that were used to hold up the old style curtain pole (many moons ago!).


S - cut from a spring that come from underneath an older style chair


T - was a curious find at the tip, and I still am not sure what they were used for. I found them amongst computer parts, some were alot thicker almost an inch and non-rusted, others were singular and blue on one side and amongst them were different size E's as well. Upon inspection of the thicker T, I saw that they were several T's compacted together and when I picked away at them they separated into more T's....abit of h2o and wolla...rust!

U - is a U-bolt minus the bolt

and

V - has a slight over hang but as soon as I saw it, I just had to have it. It was part of a handmade tightening bracket of some sort someone had made for something, for what? I don't know. It just had the perfect V shape I was looking for. It was joined/welded at the end onto more metal and it was somewhat challenging to detach without damaging but after several attempts and Glen's help, determination prevailed.

I love what you keep finding in that rust box Kim - the R is exquisite and the V was made for it hey? The T was a great find too - and no doubt you'll use them in many more projects!

Hi Fiona, yes the 'V' was just made for it, and the T's & E's will find their way into another project for sure!
