How to hang a painting on a wall using a Fork

Wow, sometimes we forget that cutlery can be used for more than just eating. Flatware finds a way as they say. Sadly this won’t work with spoons or knifes, just forks.

It works well because when you normally just put the nail/screw in the wall, you’re forever moving the picture frame up and down, scraping the wall, hoping the wire on the picture frame grabs onto the nail. The wire normally likes to bow inwards toward you so getting it onto the nail is next to impossible.

This fork trick is not need for frames that have the metal teeth-type hanger.

How Cutlery is made!

how cutlery is made

Something a simple as a spoon takes a lot of thought, design and energy. I’m sure the fork and knife take effort as well and there are a lot of knife making videos out there. But what it takes to create flatware has always fascinated me.

So it was pretty interesting to discover a page on a manufacturers website about how their stamped cutlery is made. That company is Eternum and they are:

“Eternum is a Belgian company created in 1924 and specialized in the creation, production and sale of stainless steel cutlery and tableware.”

It’s interesting to read how cutlery has been created for years.

Putting knives in the dishwasher – Don’t cut off a finger.

knives in the dishwasherI dedicate this post to my wife who seems to suffer from this problem. Well actually I suffer from the problem and she’s the cause. When you put knives in the dishwasher, according Richard Herring, “Knives go down, for fork’s sake”. At the Metro UK Richard has a great article about the protagonist in his “novel” that dies by tripping over in the kitchen and landing on a large kitchen knife that is in the cutlery section of the dishwasher, sticking point upwards. (It’s not true but still scary). Cutlery can kill it seems. Fatal flatware if you will.

Before reading that, you might want to check out our earlier post on avoiding rust on cutlery in your dishwasher.
