    Spool Holder

    The LOML belongs to a group called Busy Bees, they make clothes for Barbie Dolls for under-privileged kids.

    She goes thru a lot of thread and wanted to be able to use the large cone type of spools, but they didn't fit too well on her sewing machine.

    I came up with this out of some scraps of Bocote that I had. Works great, and doesn't look too bad either.

    Simple but great idea, and it looks real nice too. Careful though...if word gets you that you can make these, you might have a bunch of ladies wanting one of their own.

    That's a great idea Dan. Vaughn's probably right, you're going to busy with these for a while.
