This is a cart that I made for my wife. She makes rosary’s out of twine. They are called knotted rosary’s. They are all twine so you can bring them with you when you have an MRI. We started doing this when I had a brain tumor and couldn’t bring my rosary into the MRI.

The different colors are kept on a pull out shelf and strung through a strip of purple heart towards the back. After using this for a while, we found the way the twine was stored underneath was not working out. It kept falling off the spool and getting tangled up. The picture below shows how I fixed it. I just added a piece of wood down the middle and strung dowels through it. Now the spools spin on the dowel and don’t get tangled.

We make a lot of these rosary’s and give them to the teenagers in our confirmation program but have also sent them to people all over the world.

First a prayer that your illness is well behind you, and that you are well. Second a thanks to your Wife for making these if they can be a comfort to someone who is ill, or make them happy.

Third, outstanding work, and a great adjustment after the initial model proved problematic.

Thank you for posting.
