October, 2018 – A friend requested a utensil holder to go with some other special family items. I made this out of two blocks of camphor. The third photo shows the glue-up. The primary tool used was the band saw. The trick after making the cylinder is to slice off the bottom, cut out the inside, and glue the bottom back on. The last photo shows the bottom being glued back on.

A round-over bit in the router table was used on the inside and outside of the rim, and on the bottom. After final sanding, a butcher-block finish (safe for contacting food or utensils) was applied. The final dimensions are about 4.5-inches in diameter and about 6.5-inches tall.
