Looking over the scraps of wood, thought I’d make an egg holder with the black walnut. It was either the black walnut or the ash. I thought the ash would not make for a great contrast in color between the egg or holder, so black walnut it is. Still not sure what I’ll make the ash into.

One issue I had was after turning it round and putting a tenon on, it was too small. The chuck couldn’t get smaller. So, no tenon, just straight round managed to fit the chuck. Any other mistakes the O.B. Shine Juice hides and makes the black walnut pop. The fancy design might have been a little overboard, but I think it turned out great.

Here is this week’s video: Humpty’s great fall! (Egg holder)
