Introduction: Wall Sewing Station

I needed a place to store my sewing supplies close to my desk but yet out of the way. I found hanging them next to my desk works great. Basically all I used to make this was a 1/4 inch piece of wood for the back part. I had scrap wood that i cut into 1 inch strips for holding the supplies. The size is up to you mine is a foot and a half by a foot. I drilled holes for the dowels at an angle for thread and holding sewing items. Some sanding and adding paint and your done.

Step 1: Tools and Supplies

  • Tools
  • tape measure
  • saw i used jig and hand saw
  • marking pencil
  • drill
  • drill bits
  • paint brush
  • finishing sanders
  • sand paper
  • newspaper for spray painting
  • hammer
  • Supplies
  • wood for backing 1 ft by 1 ft and half
  • wood for shelves 1 inch cut into strips
  • nails attching 1 inch strips
  • spray paint
  • dowels
  • wall hangers for back to mount

Step 2: Cutting Your Wood

The main piece of wood is going to the back piece that will be against the wall. Mine was 1/4 thick wood 1 ft wide by a foot and a half long. I Used a ruler and pencil to mark it and a jig saw to cut it. I went slow and sanded it to be striaght. Then I had board of wood 1 inch thick that cut into strips 1 in tall. I cut these to the width of the back board which was a foot long. I used a hand saw to cut the dowels. the width is small enough so that a thread roll can slide on and off the then length was about 3 inches long.

Step 3: Drilling Nailing Sanding Painting

After everything is cut its time to drill holes for the wood dowels to go in. Drill these at an angle so that the thread spool pulls off not hitting the row above it. I was able to fit six dowels across and each row.
Then nail in each row of the shelving to the back wood you could also screw these in.
In front of each dowel i added a small nail to but the corisponding color of the bobbin under the thread spool.
Then sand all edges.
Add paint I used black spray paint.
