I wanted to try out my new chalk paint before I tackled a big project. The blocks of wood are around 3″ square and I was going to make a pretty stand for thread. Thought and thought and eventually found the curtain hooks to thread the thread through. The bobbins were a late buy and I decided to add a magnet. I could not have made these without my bench drill and was happy with the results. BUT, they would have looked better with thread wrapped around the reel and perhaps trim on the base block. 8 have gone off to new homes and I may make a few more.
