    Ribbon Rack project

    Hey, This is my first time here. I do some hobby woodworking and A friend of mine who does some embroidery asked me to make an organizer for her ribbon spools and this is what I came up with. I was thinking of taking a few of these to a craft show. I wanted to get some feedback from those in the know. Thanks for looking, lloyd

    Hi and welcome to the board from Iowa. This is a beautiful shelf and it looks like it will work perfectly for ribbon. Great job. Thank you for sharing.
    Desiderata (Max Ehrmann) - Walk placidly amid the noise and haste and remember what peace there may be in silence. As far as possible without surrender be on good terms with all persons. Speak your truth quietly and clearly; and listen to others, even the dull and the ignorant; they too have their story. Avoid loud and aggressive persons, they are vexations to the spirit.

    Hello from Texas, And yes Lloyd, I think that would work out really well for
    ribbon storage. I like the idea that it hangs on the wall and not take up counter space.
    Good luck.

    I think it's great. I'd like a deluxe model with glass doors on the front to keep my ribbons dust free. Or would that make the cabinet too heavy to hang on the wall?

    I agree with Pam. With me living the high desert, this is definetly a plus to have things covered up, but yet be able to see them.

    I am loyal to anyone who makes something to help us quilters. I think what you made is wonderful. Where can I buy one? I can think of others uses for it. Please let me know how to order one. Also, do you stain them?

    It looks great, I think this would sell well with stampers & scrapbookers. Keep the dowel rods thin tho because some ribbon spools are pretty small. I would have bought this in a heart beat, much nicer than the Martha Stwerd ones I'm using.
