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!

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?
