Item details

This item is handmade on a lathe out of bocote wood.

It is a version of a treenware traveler's sewing kit. The outside looks like one of our standard needle cases. The inside holds both needles and thread. This makes it a nice portable item or useful tool at home.

The inner piece acts as two connected spools/bobbins that you can wrap thread around. At one end, there is a hole to stick needles in. This inner piece slides into the outer case to protect it and keep everything together.

While thread sizes vary, this can hold approx. 5 yards of each color. Depending on the size of your needles, the hole for needle storage can hold approx. 5 needles. You might be able to get more or less inside.

The overall outer measurements are approx. 4 inches long and 7/8 inch diameter.

The overall inner measurement of the spool/needle storage unit is approx. 2 1/8 inches long and 5/8 inch diameter.

Each of the two thread storage areas on the spool/bobbin is approx. 5/8- 3/4 inches long and 1/8 inch deep.

The inner needle storage hole in the spool unit is approx. 2 inches deep and 1/8 inch diameter.

Please be aware that if you turn the inner spool/storage unit so the hole for the needles is facing down when it is out of the exterior case, the needles will fall out. Please open it horizontal, or in a vertical direction over the body of the case or so the body of the case lifts off toward the top to prevent the needles from spilling out.

Oil and wax finish.

For all of our cases, changes in humidity and temperature may make the lids fit looser or tighter over time. If this happens, you can easily adjust the fit by trying some of these suggestions. If you would like a tighter fit, rub some clear nail polish or beeswax along the interior of the lid. For a looser fit, gently rub fine sand paper along the inside of the lid.

Clean and care for them the same way you would wood furniture.

Great gift for crafters. Ideal for men or women.
