The wife wanted a cookbook stand. She sent me some pictures of some very plane ones, just a couple boards nailed together. I tried to talk her into something that was a bit more fancy, but she wouldn’t budge until i pulled out a hunk of redwood burl and sliced out a few pieces. Trimmed it with a bit of maple and cherry and we came up with this. A little linseed oil and polyurethane and we were in business.
