styrene rod holder
Posted by Rev21 on Sunday, February 26, 2017 2:04 AM

I saw a thread some time ago about how to store styrene rod. So I finally got around to making a holder. I actually made it a couple of months ago, but didnt know how to post pics. I finally had my wife show me how to do it. Here is the holder.   I got the tubes from walmart. They were filled with soap and the cap was removable with a wand for blowing bubbles. They worked out great. Band sawed the threaded portion off, cleaned off burs and had nice holders that are transparent so I can see the smaller shorter pieces that are down inside. Each tube is removable so I can pour out the smaller pieces when needed. The frame is all wood.

Great Idea.  Especially like that smalls can be found at a later time.  Is far ahead of my current method   of keeping them in their original packaging. Thumbs Up

Wow Rev21, that is a really nice holder for Evergreen stock and looks handy too. I would make one after seein' yours but I really don't have the room to put it anywhere. Great job!
