I decided to finish off the last little pieces of black walnut and ash, thinking it could be a toothpick holder. I also thought I could use a wood tap and die set for a twist lid. Going into this, I wasn’t sure what the shape or design would be, I just jumped in.

Turned the black walnut first and threading was no problem. However, the cylinder needed to be really long, which means it would need to go deep into the ash. So I had to make a small adjustment on how it would look in the end. I was hoping for a larger cap, but ended up with a small cap.

The ash was difficult to tap/thread. I’m not sure its just the hard wood, hole wasn’t large enough or slightly angled going in. I managed to get it threaded and the black walnut fit nicely.

Turning it round and decorating it with the elf tool, I was ready to start sanding. On the final hand rotation before sanding I noticed the “funnel”! I cut to close to the wall of the bottle and punched through. I added CA glue from the outside to start the sealing process. Put some glue on the inside and sealed the capsule completely.

In the end, I could not decide if it’s a toothpick holder, bottle, flask or Egyptian urn! What do you think it is (besides a sealed funnel)?

Here is this week’s video: First Funnel!! Making a Bottle? Flask? URN? T-pic holder?
