All of the parts to the yarn-cake winder need to be trimmed. I started with the 1/2″ thick parts. Today I need to finish those, and start on cutting out the 1/4″ parts. Sooner or later, I need to start figuring out the assembly process. 

One of the things that’s been driving me a little batty is that some of the holes need to be unusual sizes: 11/64″ and 21/64″. I don’t have those drill bits. I suppose I could drill the holes in x/16″ths, and get close to those numbers, and then file to the right shape. This is what’s recommended.
