Sorry for the poor pictures – this rack looks a lot better in real life (that’s what they all say huh !).

The second photo is an attempt to show how the spools are nicely cradled. I think the rack looks nice and, according to my wife, it works well.

After I had cut all the slots, the piece cupped and I had to add some cleats to the back to reflatten it.

The wood is American Black Walnut.

Nice job!
I love projects made for specific things because each one is unique.
