Hide that Ruler

I made two variations of these test tube holders this week. The metal piece is a thingamajig that fits onto pegboards. I had the vision of how this would go together in my brain. Then reality reared its ugly head. Once I figured out how to anchor the metal thing to the wood, I was off to the races. But Plan A involved measuring and making things even. The metal tape from one of those wind-up measuring tapes didn't want to be parallel with anything! After some frustration and fussing, I went with the place-it-here-and-there method. Happy prevailed in my garage! -- Beth
