On Sunday I instantly knew Mr. Woodsy was up to no good. He had a smirk on his face, and was being very secretive. I went out to the garage a few times and I kept asking him what he was doing and his reply was “don’t worry about it”! I left the house unfazed to run errands and came home not even thinking about what he had been up to a few hours prior. As soon as I got home Mr. Woodsy helped unload all the bags from the truck–he even helped put grocery’s away (that never happens)! Then after we were done putting everything away he told me to follow him–he had a surprise for me! So I followed him and thought to myself “oh-my what has he done now”?
To my surprise I found a new wooden tip on my broken CHI curling iron!!!
Mr. Woodsy broke the plastic tip off my curling iron back in the summer (although he will deny it and point the finger back at me)! In any event I had contacted Farouq Systems who makes the CHI products, and they informed me that they do not sell a replacement tip for there curling irons. I would ultimately have to go buy a new one! The only thing that was wrong with it was that the tip was broken off. A month went by and Mr. Woodsy thought he fixed it. Super glueing the tip back together! That lasted about three uses and then it broke off again–forcing me to use an oven mitt to curl my hair!
A few months have since passed and I’ve learned to live without having my hair curled. I even came to the realization that I was going to have to get a new one! So, I put one on my Christmas list and was hoping if I was good that Santa would get me a new one! Well, Santa, aka Mr. Woodsy did even better than that–he fixed my perfectly fine curling iron by restoring it and giving me an amazing and one-of-a-kind Brazilian Cherry Wood curling iron tip!
I’m still in awe by it, and can’t stop staring at it! I also can’t stop bragging about it; I’m so proud! He is so creative and talented! Basically he took a scrap piece of Brazilian Cherry wood and drilled a hole in it via the drill press then put it on his lathe and spun it to 1 inch in circumference. He had the half broken piece to somewhat use as his guide to the shape. Once he spun it to the correct size and shape he took a screw and drilled it into the curling iron (how the original red plastic piece was fastened).
Here is a side view of the tip!
