Organizer/reel for bonsai wire

Post  Tom Simonyi on Mon Jun 22, 2009 1:51 pm

I am growing weary of tangled wire these days...is anyone aware of or designed a reel type device for holding several rolls of wire that can be easily unrolled when needed? Thanks in advance.

Regards,
Tom

Fairly easy to make. Cut a circular piece of plywood (6" diameter). Drill hole in center. Fasten three dowels around the perimeter of the circle and wind wire on them. Screw though hole in center into a board on the wall.
