    String winder, powered version

    And here is version 2, more simple, and powered with the cordless drill :





    I made the rectangular hollow shape differently, this time I turned the main beechwood shaft with a shoulder, cut the center part with the band saw, and then glued a boxwood ring on the shoulder.

    I have to find a lighter cordless screw driver to make it more handy, but this is really efficient.

    Pulling the string taut for minutes and winding them is time consuming. Great idea on the powered winder.
