Simple brackets to mount tapestry.

Recommended Posts


Two "tapestries" btw. Photos tomorrow.

See image of brackets. 

These started as a couple of manky looking  bits of very overvarnished hardwood that I picked out of a pile for dumping. First time I used the wee router for a task like this. I found it very satisfying to produce something useful from such discarded material.

Hidden keyhole mounts to the rear.

I can only hope the Church wall behaves itself tomorrow morning.

The first bracket were a proper bollacks! Nowt but crumbly lime mortar/plaster requiring thumb sized softwood plugs, fortunately both still within the width of the bracket.

The second bracket were near as bad as I caught the rounded corner of a black basalt stone and the drill "wandered" off line, for the second bottom screw hole.

The other two brackets  were both centred on sound basalt stones in line with every hole(and see below)

There were 2 retired tradesmen present keeping me right, and one offering up quite perfect sexual innuendos rather out of kilter with the ecclasticial setting, and wi the clergy standing nearby!

Anyway "got her done".

Hypocrite that I am, I don't "do religon", but hey, iffen it keeps the wife happy, all is good.

P S. The wife spent 3 months of 7 day weeks, and fairly solid hours per day on these. Having been handed the bare skeleton of sketchy  prefab  work that needed considerable rectification(which darnt be mentioned!)
