« Part 45: Harbor Freight Folding Utility Trailer Build Part 46 of Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring series Part 47: The Dungeon Workshop: Progress Report & Walk-Through »

I posted the other day a completed project I made for the wife’s birthday. She has now populated the rack, so here is what it was designed to look like in use:

Note that on some of the spools there is a bobbin containing the same thread. This was the key ingredient: she wanted to keep the bobbins with the spools providing the thread and color. I wasn’t surprised to see that she doubled up on bobbins for some of them. I asked her if she would want to do this before starting the project. She told me she would never do that so don’t worry about it. I guess it’s a good thing I don’t always pay attention to what my wife says. ;)

Neat!

You have to do what they think they said; not what they actually said!

I will NOT show this to my wife!

Hahah. Thanks. I’ve been married for over 35 years and I still have to get out my Nifty Jifty Decoder Ring to decipher what the wife really means. ;)
