Description
A small, upright, rectangular wooden rack painted black. The thick bottom is solid, with slightly rounded edges. There are four small, circular cutouts of rubber nailed to the bottom at each corner. A tall (10.5 cm.) cylindrical post is at each corner. The thin, flat top has twelve small (0.6 cm.) holes. The round holes are all the same size and spaced equal distances apart in order that the rack can hold the glass testing bottles in an upside-down position.

The rack is apparently hand-made. Presumably this rack was used at the Telkwa Creamery which operated from 1939-1969 in Telkwa.
History Of Use
Wooden rack used for holding glass test-tube-like bottles.

History Of Use
Thor Paulson 1903-1988. Mr. Paulson built the Telkwa Creamery for the Prince George based creamery, in 1938. He managed it until 1942 when he left the area to open another creamery in Williams Lake. He moved back in 1947 and bought the Telkwa creamery. He owned and operated it for 29 years. It was the last independently owned/operated creamery in B.C. and it closed its doors in 1969. One of Mr. Paulsons hobbies was woodworking. This block plane has the appearance of being homemade. A block plane arrived at its name due to the shape. This one is designed to be used with two hands. The handle was for applying pressure while working on hardwood. It was especially useful for fine cabinetry and model work. Because the blade is set at a low angle, it is the most effective one to use on end grain. It is also the handiest tool for planning corners and camfers.
