    My son gave me a thread rack and I decided to make it into a ruler holder.I laid it flat and it holds alot of rulers very well.Here is a picture.I hope you can see what I did with it.

    That is such a good idea.
    I have a thread rack that I don't use. But I will now.
    Thanks

    Love the idea, but I wish I had somewhere to set it.

    How about hanging it on the wall? If you put a bumper or something on the back along the bottom, it will cantilever it out just enough to keep the rulers in the rack.

    And I put mine in the Goodwill box and took it to them. Oh, well someone will probably find a good use for it.
