Wrench Frame


I wanted something a little unusual for Father's Day this year, so I came up with a rustic wrench frame.





What you will need:
4 Wrenchs - mine were all close to the same size.
1 Large bolt
Paint
Epoxy or glue
Cardboard



First, arrange the wrenches how you would like them for the frame.



I was going to use epoxy to hold the wrenches together, but my handy husband thought the frame would be more sturdy if he welded them together, so they are welded.



So, here is the tricky part - if you don't have a welder, it would be hard to attach the bolt to the back, so you could put it on an easel - I took a picture of it before the bolt was welded.


Then, spray paint the frame until you like the color.


I used some epoxy on the top and bottom of a piece of cardboard and attached it to the frame.  This makes a pocket for you to slide your picture in.


I guess my husband won't be suprised, because he helped, but I still think I makes a nice gift!

What are you doing for Father's Day this year?

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. What a great idea to use a wrench, how creative are you! I think if I
    started to do that sort of craft work, my husband would be following me
    up to his back shed and keeping an eye on his tools. lol
    Cheers, Anita.

  25. When purchasing a new torque wrench, you should abide by my basic recommendations for all plated instruments. Make sure that the actual stainless of nickel plating is actually uniform and even throughout it's thickness in addition to look, for more information click here andrew.
