Wooden Twine Holder

 

 
 
 
 
 
 

 
 
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!
 
Thank you for your visit!

  1. I saw that twine spool at C & B, but didn't want to spend the amount of money they were asking. I like yours better.

  6. Good for you! Your hubby did a great job! If it weren't so cold here, I'd send my hubby out to the garage to make this too! Maybe in the spring?????

  11. Ooohh, you have a planer and a drill press?! Two things we have yet to acquire! I'm trying to figure out how I'll make it so perfect without those things.

  12. I never knew a spool of twine could evoke such a positive reaction (in myself.) Usually I am hating my twine because it's laying around the junk drawer unraveling. Really love that walnut spool. If I had it I my twine would never see the inside of a drawer again. That spool is too pretty to hide!
