"Over the years I have made several of these. Speaking from personal experience, I can tell you that these boxes -when used in the pictured position- are not strong enough on their own to hold very many books or magazines for very long. Eventually they will sag and become an eyesore. Preventing the eyesore from happening is simple - turn the boxes on their side once they are completed, and Voila! They are an EXCELLENT way to wrangle in all that clutter and chaos we often find throughout our home and office. There is also another way to make them strong and that is to REINFORCE THEM. Personally, I like to do this when I need to use the boxes for flimsier items like loose papers that have a tendency to curl on their edges if stored on their sides or when not packed tightly. Reinforcing the boxes means you can put a lot more weight into them even while they are laying flat like they are in the picture. I reinforce my boxes with a very thin wood that can be purchased at almost any hardware store - it is called Louon (my spelling is probably off but it is pronounced LEW-ON). It is very cost-effective and extremely easy to work with. Add to this that it is VERY VERSATILE and you have a great solution to making even very flimsy projects much more stable. I hope this helps! BTW USPS boxes are legal to use BUT ONLY if you PURCHASED them OR they are USED. IF you are thinking about using new boxes that were FREE from the USPS Priority Mail Services - then you would be breaking the law. New FREE Boxes MUST be used only for Mail. Boxes that are Purchased or Used should be OK."

When I was a little girl, my grandmother gave me a craft box that had 50 pegs on it for little spools of colored thread. I still use that box almost 30 years later because it is so handy, but I need a bigger one. This project is the perfect thing to replace the small box. I love it!

This is a nice clear instructional video! I am wondering where I could get that polka dotted fabric that has the perfect spacing for the pegs! That is a real time saver not having to measure it all out. I have seen similar boards ready made for this purpose, but it is nice to make one for the specific area you have, and I like the fast that the legs accommodate a bobbin as well! Great project!

I would love to try it and comment. But I can't get it to load on my tablet.

My mom has a dedicated quilting room, so this project would make a great gift for her!

Like this idea a lot! Can choose the size board I want and the skewers can be custom fit for longer thread spools. [a problem with a pre-made board I had]

Works for me. ;-)

Wow...great idea!

I love this project. I would have liked to see it in print so I could keep it in my craft folder.

I love that the demo is done by a genuine crafter, not an actor. You can tell by the paint stains on her fingers. ;-)

I'm inspired!

This is a great idea. You could even add the matching bobbin to the peg so you colors are all together!

cute idea! i think i'll try this one, even without the frame, say, with just the covered board, using twine or some other sturdy cord to hang it on the wall. love it!
