I have a friend that is a brewmaster, and she always gives me a Christmas Sampler, so I wanted to give her something in return this year. When I was setting up my dovetail jig for the first one, I figured I might as well make a bunch of them for gifts, I will give her the nicest one. Walnut ends, with oak and aspen sides, used poplar and pine for the dividers. Cut out the handles on the bandsaw, and shaped on the router table. I also messed around with different designs, all based on the cardboard variety I used for dimensions.

Thanks -

They came out very nice! I like the shape of the one pictured by itself. It looks like two cutting boards attached by the handle.

Nice gifts.

Ah, something that combines two of my passions: wood working and home brewing. Great job.

Very nice projects and wood combinations. It’s very likely you will never have enough of them in inventory for gifts regardless of how many you make. Great projects are always appreciated.
