La voila! A really nice closet pole! Only this one's kind of chunky and would probably not do a very good job as a closet pole. It's my fervent wish that it works better as a mast than a closet pole anyway. Look at all the shavings! One of the things they never tell you about wood working is that you spend more time cleaning up the mess you make than you do making the mess. Unless, of course, you go all out and by a Sawdust Vacuuming System, as one of my friends did. He actually works in his third bedroom, it's so clean. The wimp.
