This is a cabinet for my wife’s embroidery thread. It holds somewhere around 475 spools. It is 32” x 36” x 9”. I cut 2 1/4×3/4 boards on a 12.5 deg angle and drilled for the pegs to hold the thread spools. These slats were glued and braded to the frame in both cabinet body and doors. This puts the spools on a 12 1/2 deg angle so they don’t fall off when the door is shut. I don’t know if you can see it but there is a fixed tray in the bottom of the left door for bobbins and needles. Needless to say I got a few brownie points for this project. I hung it with a french cleat. I used magnets for door latches. Handles are homemade.
It is made from oak and hardwood dowels and will be finished with water based polyurethane.
This is my first project completely of hardwood. I like the way it werks.
