What are you most proud of? I'm not an experienced woodworker, but I managed to design and build this in a day without help - although I got my husband to neaten up the cut-out corners with his chisel because I can't saw straight!

What advice would you give someone starting this project? Due to inexperienced woodworking, the corner cut-outs weren't identical, so it fits together better in one particular way. The corners are colour-coded with permanent marker to help me assemble it quickly. I didn't seal the wood - you may want to apply wood wax or varnish. I wouldn't recommend stain or wool oil, in case it comes off on your yarn.

I got my Dad to lightly sand my warping board dowels and then varnish (1 coat). Wish I had another coat at least as there are a few areas that are still a little rough that catch my yarn. How many yards can you get from your board?

I haven't really pushed its capacity, but about 10m.
