My wife just recently completed her sewing class and she has since amassed lots of supplies. She came home one night with an IKEA book shelf and I almost died. I told her anything else she needs I WILL MAKE IT. So she needed a place to store all of her thread. 1/4” dowels glued into rails that are bevel ripped at 45º. Two outside styles are about 2.5” each. No finish because she is going to cover it with thread and ribbon. It only took about 4 minutes to fill the 50+ dowels.
I mostly made this because I wanted an excuse to use my new table saw. It is just too cold to work out in the shop though. So the last picture is my improvised workbench on our classic pull down ironing board in the kitchen. My son agreed it is much nicer working in the heat.
Not the prettiest thing ever made, but my wife loves it because it is so useful.
Thanks for looking.
