Portable Tabletop Swift

$3

The  tutorial gives instruction on 3 methods for building your own portable tabletop swift.

Product Description

In late 2005, I got tired of using my knees and chairs to wind yarn, but was aghast at the price tag of swifts at $65-&70+, which was out of my budget at the time. I started scheming on ways in which I could build my own affordable yet functional yarn swift. The next day, I surveyed the stuff in my garage and went to my local home improvement store, determined to make my own yarn swift.

Since then, I have built a few. My first swift (Fig. 7) cost me about USD $7 for the wood – I had the other do-dads in my garage. Method 2 (above) cost me about USD $17 for all the materials since I had none left laying around in the garage. The cost for Method 3 may be a little higher if you need to purchase all your materials, due to the cost of the Lazy Susan bearings (about USD $5-$10). My first two swifts are not pretty or fancy, but they are functional, cheap, and I did them all them myself!!

It would take approximately 2-3 hours to complete one swift. The  tutorial gives instruction on 3 methods for building your own portable tabletop swift.
