We used fiber cement panels for siding because they resist rot and hold paint well (the panels come primed). If you substitute plywood panels, be aware that they’ll eventually rot along the bottoms where they’re in ground contact. We chose corrugated plastic panels for the roof because they let in light and are easy to install. Materials for our locker cost about $500.

Meanwhile, back in Europe, the birch or besom broom industry, as it was called, had prospered since Saxon times in the sandy heath areas of south-east England, where the birch grows profusely. Known as Besom Squires, the craftsmen were numerous along the Surrey-Sussex border, and they employed assistants who worked individually in the coppices. The brooms were made of birch twigs attached to a handle of ash, hazel or chestnut.

Hooks are wonderful for hanging clothes, decorations or other objects to walls, doors or cabinets, but not everyone wants to be permanently inserting nails or drilling holes throughout their homes. Command hooks can enable you to instead place hooks wherever you want with ease, and then remove them whenever you need to without leaving a mark. Think of the possibilities. Hang potholders on the inside of cabinet doors. Attach a Command hook to a bedpost for hanging bath towels or robes. Hang holiday decorations wherever you want to, and then take them down when the holiday is over, without any wall or door damage. Whether you need large hooks or small hooks, there are a variety of hooks to give you limitless possibilities.

If you haven’t painted the locker yet, now is a good time. Install the doors. Start by nailing a scrap piece of wood in front of the opening so the top is 1-1/2 in. from the bottom of the locker. Drill pilot holes and attach heavy-duty door hinges to the top and bottom of both doors. Set both doors in place over the scrap lumber. Insert shims so the doors don’t pinch at the top and side, then attach the hinges to the door supports with screws (Photo 9). Add handles and a lock as desired.

I’m thinking the way to be sure to detect any power feeds reliably is turn everything in the apartment on when scanning, since it only detects live circuits. That way any circuits in there should be active at the time.

Hey Newf,  you were right.  The stud finder scanned the studs just fine in deep scan mode (and sometimes partially detected them in normal mode).  By far most of the project was just pinpointing the stud to use.  The remaining two steps of drilling the pilot hole and installing the hook were really quick and a piece of cake, after that.

The modern homemaker can choose from a range of implements to clean his floors, including synthetic brooms, the constantly metastasizing Swiffer product line, and, of course, the vacuum cleaner. The last of these is highly effective at certain tasks (especially the cleaning of carpets), but most American homes still keep an old-fashioned broom around for its unfailing dependability. For a household item essentially perfected in its design so many decades ago, the broom’s staying power—both as a cleaning tool and cultural symbol of neat domestic tranquility—is remarkable and deserved.

Many copies of the 1810 broom machine were made, and soon many one or two man broom shops were making thousands of round brooms each year.
