The title is exactly what one of the Christmas gifts to my wife was addressed and for good reason. I spent a couple of days working out the details of this:
My wife has been wanting a thread holder for quite a while now, I have looked at a number of types and put this one together loosely based on one I have seen at a fabric store and could not bring myself to buy due to the poor construction. There were a number of them falling apart on the shelf and when I mentioned it to the manager she nodded and said “Yes, I am constantly putting the one I have back together” I am hoping this one will hold up much better. The DW likes it and I will be rigging it to hang on the wall for her.
This project did actually puzzle me for a bit, so I learned a few good lessons in it and that is what I love to do at the end of a project. I did want the edges to be nice and smooth as to not catch on the threads, so I dug out a recent gift.
The Lee Valley Cornering Tool, I have two of these guys in two different sizes. This one worked perfect it is a lot faster and quieter then starting up my router for a small project like this. I will look forward to using them more in the future.
Other then that I hope everyone that celebrates had a good Christmas. To those that don’t Happy Holidays. Santa was good to me with anew pack of clamps and a hole saw kit. I will look forward to putting it to good use.
Have a great week in and out of the shop.
