What does a whatnot look like?

A whatnot is created in three or four stages and can be any shape: square, oblong, or a quarter circular, as seen in the figure, to fit into a corner. When the whatnot is rectangular, a drawer is sometimes added beneath the lowest shelf. They are typically used for the receiving of music books, china, and so forth. Whatnots were popular in Victorian-era England and are now popular again with artists and craftspeople who like to have easy access to small tools and materials.

Shelf units made from wood are now used instead. The whatnot remains a popular addition to bedrooms, especially guest rooms. There it serves as a convenient place to store items that may not get used regularly but still need a good home.

Shelf units made from metal or plastic are available as well. These do not usually have a compartment underneath for storing smaller items, but rather have one large open space for holding many small objects. What is stored on top is covered by a lid or tray.

The whatnot is particularly useful for artists and crafts people because it allows them to keep their tools close at hand while still keeping them out of sight otherwise often occupied areas of the room.

There are several different types of whatnots available on the market today. Some are made of wood, some are made of metal, and some are made of plastic. What kind you choose should depend on how much use you expect it to get and what your budget is.

What does a distaff look like?

The traditional Russian distaff, which is used with both spinning wheels and spindles, is L-shaped and consists of a horizontal board known as the dontse (Russian: dontse) and a flat vertical piece, commonly oar-shaped, to which the bundle of fibers is attached or pinned. The donetses are held together at their base by a crosspiece called a kolben. There are two types of donetses: one for wool (which usually has holes in it for tying off bundles of fiber) and one for cotton (which is usually made of wood).

Wool distaffs were traditionally made from sheep's tail hair. Today, they are often made from buffalo hair or synthetic materials. Cotton distaffs are still made from cotton fiber but also from synthetic fibers.

Spinning wheels are easy to spin cotton with, because its fibers are very long and thin. With wool, however, the fibers get shorter when you pull them out of the animal's body and they need to be spun into yarn before they can be used. This is where distaffs come in handy - without one, spinning wool would be almost impossible!

This comes from the fact that men who work with wool need something to hold the fiber while they spin it.

What does a gobo look like?

A gobo is usually a piece of metal with curved holes bored into it that creates a light pattern. The pattern may be anything from abstract forms to a message or trademark, and it is introduced into a spotlight at the focus point (referred to as the "gate") between the lamp (bulb) and the lenses. The word comes from the Japanese word for hole, go, which refers to the hole in the metal plate when viewed under magnification.

Gobos are used in theatrical lighting to create special effects such as shadow play, to outline or fill in background scenery, or to project images onto walls or ceilings. They are also used in photography to control the light intensity distribution on set props or costumes, or to create decorative patterns on backgrounds or sets.

In theater lighting, there are two main types of gobos: colored and clear. Colored gobos are pieces of glass or plastic with small holes drilled or milled into them. These are used to produce different colors of light by inserting them into the lamp chamber of a troffer light. Clear gobos work similarly, but instead of being colored they transmit all the colors of light from the lamp simultaneously.

Clear gongs are easier to use than colored ones because they don't need to be matched up with any other color in order to produce a specific effect.

What face shape looks good with curtain bangs?

Square faces look great with curtain bangs because of the way it covers up any visible wrinkles or scars. It also adds width to your face, making you look more attractive.

Round faces look nice with curtain bangs too. They suit rounder faces well and add some length to the side. Round faces also look better when dressed up rather than down. So if you have round cheeks, wear makeup to make them pop out more.

Roughly half your head is covered by your hair when you wear a scarf. This means that you can see more of your face than if you were wearing a hat. Your forehead is exposed, as are your cheekbones and nose. This makes square faces look good with scarf bangs because it hides all those visible lines and wrinkles.

Curtain bangs are a great way to hide hair loss or to disguise thinning hair. When you walk into a room with curtains hanging in front of you, you get a feeling of privacy, which makes people feel comfortable enough to open up to you. This is especially true if they don't know you very well yet!

What does a billhook look like?

A billhook is made up of a handle and a blade with a bevelled cutting edge running along one or both edges. The upper end of the blade is frequently bent to produce a hook shape. The handle, which is almost typically made of wood, and the core of the blade are parallel. The blade can be straight or slightly curved on both sides.

Bill hooks are used for harvesting grain such as wheat, barley, and rye. They are also used for harvesting fruit trees (for removing ripe fruit), and for logging (before modern machinery was available).

The word "bill" comes from the Old English word bille, which means "stick or pole." Thus, a billhook is a long-handled tool with a cutting edge at one end, designed to remove branches, leaves, and fruit from grain crops. The term is still in use in Britain today.

The earliest evidence of human use of bills has been found in Turkey and Israel, dating back 11,000 years. By about 7,500 years ago, people were using bills to harvest grain. The Chinese are believed to have invented the steel knife around 600 AD. However, the Chinese did not develop the technique of hardening their knives until much later, so they used wooden bills instead.

In Europe, metal tools became popular starting in the 13th century, but it wasn't until the 16th century that they replaced wooden tools entirely.
