One craft item I make is tongs. I make them in lots of different woods to suit the discriminating tastes of potential buyers. Displaying a representative variety of them in a way that patrons can quickly and conveniently look over is sometimes tricky. To help with this, I made this turn table to hold the tongs upright. Customers can see a couple dozen of them in just a few seconds by giving it a whirl. To avoid having the more zealous scoot it all over I covered the bottom with skid-reducing shelf liner.

Have a great day, Lumberjocks.
