so these are my swap projects that went to bill berklich.a cocobolo set of coasters with sandstone centers,rubber pad on the bottoms with a matching holder. a bowl turned from silver oak given to me by my good lj’s friend mark wilson.the top band is padauk.the wood was so eatin up with bug holes i almost gave up,but with the help from a lot of ca glue it came out ok i think.and a bottle opener mader from some dyed stabalized birch given to me form another good lj’s friend dave polaschek.finish on all three was gf bowl finish,3 coats.dave got me to join in then decided he wasn’t doing it this year so this was my way too include him.this swap was a ton of fun and made some new friends.i highly recommend joining in next year,kenny runs a great swap.

Good Stuff, Pottz. That cocobolo is outstanding. I didn’t realize this was your first swap. I hope you stick around for more. Don’t forget to add the ‘beer swap 2021’ tag to the keywords!

I really like that bowl!

I’m not trying to cause problems but shouldn’t there be some beer? ;-)

I’d probably do a rum swap….

Nicely done Pottz! Glad you found a use for that birch, too!

Remember that after adding the tag, you need to click “save” so it sticks, bud.

There something about coco’ that is always to be admired…

That padauk is also cute, but you had to add a bowl of CA under it…

Bet you’re gonna have a bleeding water bowl in your coffin.
