We’ve said it before: there’s a soft spot in our hearts for a cool product that ingeniously repurposes a mundane object to serve a new function. We’re not talking about MacGuyvering an AM Radio out of a paper clip, a Q-tip, and 9 volt battery either. Take these old classic hand-cast iron C-clamps from Crate and Barrel. Designed to be bookends, they work perfectly on virtually any shelf, and hold fast a set of books or any other object that needs to stand upright. They lend a bit of masculine style to any place, and while you’re baby-soft hands may have never hewed a piece of wood in their lives, you can at least familiarize yourself with the hardware.

Make sure to schedule some time for target practice because this addictive little crossbow can do some damage. Have fun, but avoid the sensitive areas.
