*Read all instructions first to get a good understanding!!!
Materials you will need:
1 piece of wood 1 x1 works 20 inches long
2 screws 1/4 inch long
Beads (seed beads)
Measure from each end three inches, mark it and saw these off but dont discard them.
Taking those three inch boards, using a pencil draw a line down the center of them. [-------] not on the longest part!!!! As if you had them standing up in position like bookcases on the longer board.
Then using your saw make a groove in it. This is where your beaded thread is going to go so you can separate your threads when doing beading.
Take the other end of the three inch boards and nail it to the 14 inch board so it looks like this...
l______________l <~ the "l" is the three inch boards!!!
Once secure you will add your screws to the outer sides of your three inch boards like this...+l___________l+
the "+" is your screws one per side.
Then thread up your needle making sure there is a knot at the end...string on some beads around thirty or so, put in another knot.
Take this beaded thread put it in your groove and using thumbtacks on either side to secure the thread...[XXXXXX]
the "X" is your beaded thread.
Now all you have to remember is that if you are doing a beaded project you will have an off count of threads for any project i.e. if the project has six beads you will have seven strands.
Using the screws on the end to hold your strands and the beaded thread to separate your strands.
Take your time and before you start lay it out to help you if need be.
