Storing threads

I used to store all my threads in an old fishing tackle box but got sick and tired of them getting jumbled and tangled so I thought of an alternative. I drilled holes ( at an angle) along the edge of some scrap timber. I lined some nails up with the holes and then placed my spools of thread on the nails and pulled the ends through the holes thus creating a dispenser of sorts. I have a few like this. I have collected quite a lot of 'antique' cotton and linen threads from antique and collectible shops. They are relatively cheap - apparently the spools are collectible - and, in my opinion, are often better quality than the modern stuff. Hope the idea helps someone who also suffers from tangled thread syndrome.
