No, it’s not what you are thinking :-)) My Wife asked me if I could make her something to hold some Cotton Cooking String (I didn’t know it existed). I now know that Cooking String is used to secure things that are being cooked – can’t have the Chicken trying to run out of the oven. Below is what I came up with, it’s Maple and is 5” tall and 1 7/8” wide. I drilled a 9/64” hole for the string to pass through. Wife is happy – so you know I’m happy.

Very nice! I like your design and the bead looks good.
If you have friends come over for dinner thy might try to use it for salt or pepper by pulling the string. LOL
lots better than chasing it rolling around the kitchen!!!

Turned out very nice. Good shape for a cooking string holder (I guess) Never heard of them before either. Everybody is happy.

In the old butcher shops the string came out of the middle of the spool, went up to a hook/eye on the ceiling and then over to the cutting/tying area and then came down from a second eye. That way the loose end was right at eye height, ready to be caught and tied for the next roast.

Great job on the mini spool for home use.

You actually have a wife that cooks? Will wonders never cease? All my wife can make is Reservations.

Nice work.

Very innovative—I like it; and, it opens the door to a lot of other adaptations.

That really looks good, Bill. Don’t nod off in your chair or she might tie you up.
