This useful project makes storing your twine simple and stylish. Using an old wooden salad bowl, commonly found in thrift stores, we added a few touches including a built-in cutter made from a picture hanger. The result is a clever storage solution that will look great on your potter’s bench or make a great gift for a gardening friend.

Materials:

  • Wooden salad bowl (thicker is better)
  • ½” galvanized plumbing floor flange
  • ½” x 5 ½” galvanized pipe
  • ½” galvanized cap
  • (4) ½” wood screws
  • Small picture hanger
  • 2 finishing nails
  • Kitchen knife sharpener
  • Hammer
  • Screwdriver
  • Twine
  • Pliers or vice grip
