Shop Tip #096

Way up by the ceiling in the corner of my shop, I have a big spool of twine mounted on the wall. The spool is stuck onto a regular shelf bracket that I simply bent upward at the end to go inside the conical core. The string passes through a couple of screw eyes in the ceiling, and hangs down by the front door. You'd be surprised at how often you reach for a hunk of string when it's this handy!
