Yep, a project that none of you are likely to make. But forget that it’s for yarn; it’s really just a container that can be modified to fit any storage need. Also, a simple jig for making finger joints on the table saw.

Read more about this project here.

Great video as usual, Steve. I really liked this project, though I don’t have a specific need for it. The tutorial on the finger joints was excellent! I will have to give those a try at some point.

Speak for your self.

My wife is a fiber artist and she walked past and saw me looking at the picture and immediately said ” I want two of those”

Another winner.

That was a great bit of knowledge there about the finger joints. I made one of your yarn swifts for my gal, who also knits, and I can see myself building something like this for her too. Thanks for all the ideas!
And that yarn swift? It has added to her madness. She now buys sweaters from resale shops and deconstructs them so she has EVEN MORE of a hoarding problem than she used to, and that thing is invaluable in the process.

Great Video as usual. Looks like your new saw is working out great. I thought it was the 2012 year end wrap up though. You have you year end wrap up shirt on of 2010 and 2011. The things LJs notice. Thanks for another great video.

At least the his saw isn’t putting HIM through his paces anymore. I’ve finally overcome that problem myself. Great project!
