At Christmas, I saw this wooden spool holding a roll of twine in a Crate and Barrel ad. I thought it looked so neat! I asked my husband if he could make some? Yes!
He started with a walnut board.
He planed it down till it was smooth.
He was able to cut the circles using his router and drill press.
He used walnut dowels to keep everything looking consistent.
He used MinWax English Chestnut stain.
And MinWax Wipe on Poly to finish it.
I bought a roll of twine from Michael's and put it in there. I am on the lookout for some neat old scissors too!
It cost about $5 each for the wood. The twine was $3 with a coupon at Michael's for a total of $8 each. I think he did a great job!
