  • Is this why we scroll?

    The other day I was moving some items for my DD. I came across this while going through her stuff. My dad made this many years ago, he passed away about 4 years ago. I spent quite a bit of time remembering him and the woodworking items he left us. It was a nice visit dowm memory lane.
    Anyway, I have never seen anything like it here so I thought I would share it with you all. He did not use a scroll saw but it could be made with one.
    Do you know what it is?

    What is a DD? with the holes in the bottom rail did he have turning tools in it?
    It obviously got a great deal of use based on the worn wood.

      I am guessing that DD means "dear dad" or "departed dad". Rolf I agree it appears to be some form of tool rack. A cute one at that.

          With the word hotel, I'm leaning towards something for keys or such...
          ...But yea, it does look like somewhere to keep tools or something...
          Hmmm

                I would not want to use a toothe brush that can wear wood like that.

                        Key attached to a dowel with a string. Holes are to hold the dowels.

                            It's a calendar holder with room for pens, etc.

                              Maybe the balcony held some mail and the holders inside were for pens.

                              Looks to me that the wear marks inside were there before the item was built.
