Wire Holder




About: I like to tinker with just about anything, sometimes it works out in the end. Have fun looking at the projects, try tearing something open and let me know how it goes. cheers, -Joe

Intro: Wire Holder

Need a place to hold your spools of wire? Tired of the spools rolling off your desk? Here you go, and if you need to, you can use it as a paper towel holder...

Step 1: Parts

4 small-medium screws.
13" of 3/4" dowel
1" x 4" wood.

Step 2: Measure

Here you can lay out your spools of wire and just go or follow these plans.

bottom is 4 1/8" long
measure up 1" from the base,
measure 1 3/4" from the side,
connect those two points with a 45 degree angle.

For the holes for your dowels measure:
top hole - 1 1/4" in, 3/4" down.
bottom hole - 1 1/8" up, 3/4" in from the side

Step 3:

heres a shot of it with the holes drilled, use a 3/4" bit.

Step 4:

Counter sink one hole for your both of your screws, this will hold the dowels in place and let you replace the spools when they are empty.

Step 5:

Cut the dowel in to 6 1/4" lengths.

Step 6:

Put it all together and you are done.

    I have the same spools, they are pretty stiff wire. Good project in its simplicity.
