but I build something pretty useful for an amateur sewer like me: a sewing thread shelf.
and here is how I did build this
the blue one is a very thick plate of styrodur, it is about 12 cm the pink one is also a styrodur plate but its thickness is only 1,8 cm. the white plate is a simple styropor plate with 0,7 cm thickness.
to build this shelf i only needed the white and the pink plates. these are all partly used, so this is a optimal use of leftovers.
check out my styrodur entry, if you want to know more about this material.
mine was about 36,5cm x 54 cm
the gap between the nails is about 5 cm and the distance from the end to the first nail is about 2 cm. so there are nine nails for each stripe.
calculation of the distance
(total length - thickness of stripes * number of stripes) / (total numbers of stripes - 1)
in my case 54 cm - 6*2 / 6-1 = 8,4 cm
turn over and sort your sewing threads :D
whohow! humble thank you for reading and a really awesome day
