Make an Extra Large Thread Rack

I'm in the process of moving my sewing work space from the basement to the attic. Ahhhh, sunlight. It has been down in the basement way too long. It will be crowded up here, but worth it.

I need another thread rack, so I'm making it again.

I get a piece of 2' X 4' peg board and 1/4" by 48" dowels and Wood Glue from a hardware store.

I used a dremel to cut the dowels into 5 1/4" pieces and proceed to glue them in, slightly slanted upwards.

I didn't put the dowels as close as I could have, you will have to experiment based on the amount of room you have available.

Hung up....

I have 4 total, I'll take a pic of the work space when its all up here.

I love your thread rack -- you are crafty *smiles* I would have made my husband make it for me. Hmmmm, maybe that is why I am still waiting on it. I should take your cue and make one. Looking forward to seeing pictures when they are all finished and hung. Cheers!!!

Oh my goodness, Diane, I don't know if I'd have the patience to cut all the sticks and then glue them all in ... but it's so nice I can see why you'd do it. YAY sunlight!
