Making a Needle CaseMaking a Needle Case
By: Fred Holder
In this tutorial, Fred Holder shows us how it turns a long, thin needle case and then how he cuts threads into the top. This is a project that would appeal to almost any person that sews and uses needles.

This turning project was designed to hold two needles and two three-meter lengths of cotton, useful for clothing repairs while traveling.

A needle case makes a nice first project for using a taper gauge. The cap with a tapered tenon is easy to put in the case, easy to remove (unless you bang it in) and stays securely. A 1/4" magnet in inlaid in the cap so the user doesn't have to turn it upside down to get a needle out?just give the case a slight shake with the cap on and all the needles will attach to the magnet. The cap can then be withdrawn and the needles grasped with a couple of fingers holding the case. If you make another smaller size taper gauge you can add a needle threader in the cap. The case could also be used to hold toothpicks, pills, or any other small objects.
