The second objective was doing it with little effort and readily available materials, tools and supplies.
As I no longer subscribe to paper magazines, I have several plastic magazine protective boxes I used as the base for this.
Step 1: Materials, Supplies and Tools
1 12"(30.5 cm) x 9" (23 cm) x 7/8" (2.3 cm) hard plastic magazine protector
8 Bamboo BBQ skewers
1 Melting glue stick
1 1" masking tape roll
1 Hot glue gun
1 Cable cutter or serrated knife
Step 2: Cut the Bamboo Skewers to Length
Using the cable cutter or serrated knife, cut 8 pairs of bamboo skewers so that they fit inside the box. Lengths will vary depending on placement in box.
Step 3: Join Bamboo Skewers
Join two skewers with masking tape.
These will be the walls between the spools.
Step 4: Glue Skewer Pairs to Box
This design involved 4 skewer walls for 4 spool columns and one bobbin column.
Align the skewer pairs and glue them to the box using the hot glue gun.
Step 5: Put Spools in Box
Put spools into box.
To keep spools from getting misaligned, a small piece of foam can be put inside the empty slots.
Fits 45 spools and 14 bobbins.
