Also it was not too expensive except that the postage and carriage was as expensive as the item thus doubling the cost so I searched on UK Amazon and found THIS: a paintbrush organiser stand from Hobby -Zone.
It was cheap and cheerful and seemed capable of holding very many hooks so I ordered it Monday and it came today! Sadly it is not supplied with glue to make it immediately but luckily after much searching - and finding many glue tubes that were all dried up and useless- I found some all purpose bostik glue that I trusted would cope with the wood and MDF.
It slotted together very nicely from a simple diagram:
Then I realised if I was really going to organise all my hooks in rows by size on this stand they would get very dirty / dusty quickly so I wanted a cover for when not in actual use day by day.
A clear cover would be the ideal, but I hate sewing with clear polythene so I chose some non fraying fabric alternative which I had in my stash and I think has a really jolly bright stripe?!
They are fancy designer dusters really so I used 3 and sewed them together.
I made a handle to lift the cover off easily.
I have kept my steel hooks from 0.6 mm to 1.75 mm in a separate tapestry case as I use them so very rarely. Ditto for the Tunisian hooks they are tied up with their long extension tubes in a special bag.
Pride of place on my windowsill aside my studio desk...
All covered up, ready for bed...
CROCHETED SOCK SLIPPERS as well! and of course the surgical shoe as well as a croc on the other foot.
