I am a member of Interlock Rochester, which is a local hacker space. People there are working on projects and I though that I make something that is fun. So I made a Festivus pole like mentioned in an episode of Seinfeld. The pole is supposed to be unadorned. I started with a aluminum shower curtain rod with a flange and some 1/2 inch thick MDF.
Then I cut the MDF to an 8 inch square as the base.
Attached the flange to the center of the board.
Put some electrical tape to the end in the flange so it will stay in and pole for Festivus for the rest of us.
