Here are 3 projects I made for our house to organize the things we use everyday. The first is a thread spool rack- there are 2 of them identical to each other . Then I have a hanging magazine rack that holds the latest issues of wood magazine and catalogs from Grizzley, Harbour Freight, MCLS. Penn State and Woodworkers Supply. Then there are a pair of paint bottle racks for my wife’s acryic paints. They are on lazy susans so you can swing them around. They are made of red oak are all finished with Zar 120 stain and Polyurethane

Really cool, and usefull, I especially like the one for the threads, it’s wonderful to see how they become alive like that.
Usefull and well made, thanks for sharing.

Wow, I love all three. Great job. I might have to make the paint bottle holder. I keep mine in a toolbox, which seemed like a good idea until the collection started growing. ’;o)
