Recycled cardboard box + printed apex, spring, rod and spool bearings = Yet Another Spool Holder!

Recycle symbol lifted from tbstott's http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:7720

Spool bearings from epengr's http://www.thingiverse.com/thing:11365


Cut a bunch of uniform equilateral triangles from a cardboard box (7" high, 8.08" base works nicely).
Glue together, rotating cardboard triangles 60 degrees each layer. 8-10 layers depending on cardboard thickness. Make two.
Print 2 apexes and glue to one angle on each of the cardboard triangle base.
Cut 5"x12" strips for base. I used three layers on exterior and one interior. Space scoring so folds are neat.
Print a spring and rod (holes are handy for pinning the rod to the base - can use a M3 screw or 3mm filament).
