A thread stand for all the sewers out there

Here's another gift my hubby worked on over the holidays. He took the wooden slats from an old futon that had been thrown away and started putting them together in an entirely different way.

He wanted to make a gift for a woman who loves to sew and has way too many spools of thread laying around the house. So he drilled some holes in the slats, and started putting dowels into the holes.

He measured, cut and drilled away.

And here's the finished product.

And here's side view.
