natural and simple domestic tool fix

The time had come when our mop, after 10 years of service, finally had the gong. It's handle, as well, being in a bad way, had to be replaced. I chose to innovate,  headed down to the local reverse art truck site, and picked up some wooden dowelling  to the correct size. After some sanding back a comfortable round edge at the top, and drilling a hole to accomodate some sisal twine, I then gave it varnish and simply screwed the timber into the mop head. It won't rust, as the former did, though we will see how long it handles moisture, at which point it will just need be replaced with another timber handle.
