10 Twine Stands and String Dispensers

small oak twine stand, with dark-colored twine

If I had a personal list of Things That Might Be Useful to Own, a twine holder would be - nowhere. But your needs might be different - maybe you're more of a gardener than I am, or a different type of cook. And some of these are so lovely I almost wish I could use one. The oak twine stand above, from Labour and Wait, comes in two sizes; this is the smaller one. [via Design Mom]

Your post is very timely. This past weekend I was in cooking-mode and for the umpteenth time I vowed I was going to find a gizmo to keep my cooking twine organized.

Yesterday, one of my clever clients showed me a budget-version: drop the twine in a glass jar, poke a hole in the lid of the jar and, presto!

Your examples are much better looking!

Glad you like them, Geralin said...

Wow, who knew there are so many attractive twine dispensers out there! I'm looking for a more industrial application - that would hang and have a little blade to cut the twine. Any ideas?
