When I built the first one for my dad a few years ago my brother-in-law said he wanted one. I told him that I would build him one too. It took me four years but I finally did.

Thanks Guys!

I love it. It works on the same principle as a holdfast to bind up .
Great gizmo.

What a Great Idea for Christmas presents! or any other time for that mater! As many books as I have, I would need a dozen of those. I don’t think I have ever seen such neat ideas as You have. Merry Christmas, and Many Blessings for the New Year!

That’s really clever. Now I want to make something like it. How did you cut the wooden threads?

I used a store bought threading kit. I think I got it at Woodcraft.
