If constructing a threading tool is something you’d like to do yourself, here is a step-by-step guide to help you get started.
To start, you will require an assemblage of items: an oak board, a sharp knife, a honing stone, a beeswax candle, and some tough thread. First, take the board and cut it into a rectangular shape that is roughly 4 inches by 6 inches. Slice a little notch into one end with your axe.
The honing stone needs to be used to produce a sharpened blade, guaranteeing that the tool can contain a precise edge. Embedded within the notch carved previously, make a slim groove that is equal to the width of the chosen thread. This meticulous cutting will yield the utmost crispness.
Now, with the gloriously fragrant beeswax candle, you are to melt some wax on the end of the thread. After it cools down, send the tip of the thread through the shallow pathway you have carved- that will make the string sturdier, and less prone to snapping.
After the knot is tied and any extra thread is snipped off, your homemade tool is ready for use! With it, you don’t have to struggle getting thread into the groove; all you need to do is grasp the device with one hand and direct the thread along with the other. The newly made tool will do the rest!
