3/4 inch Honduras Mahogany, graphics done with an Epilog Laser, used 6mm Festool dominos for alignment mostly, added wood glue and used pocket hole screws really just for the clamping pressure because it didn’t have a lot of material for the screws to really dig into. One coat of sanding sealer and one coat of clear poly.

This is a utilitarian item that I embellished. It’s used by sitting on it and using the metal grinding head to scrape off the coconut meat of a coconut that has been cracked in half.

Here’s a youtube video of one in use.

Thanks for looking.

Mmm, suddenly I have a taste for some Capt. Morgans spiced rum.
