This is my entry for the 2021 Beer Swap. If you haven't joined a LJ Swap you owe it yourself to "just do it" I pulled HokieKen as a swap partner and he is a tough bird to make for and select beer. The center piece (after the beer) is a carrier. I'm sure he has two of three of these so I left out the dividers so he can use it for tools, flowers, whatever. The handle is turned from a Bartlet Pear branch, ends are locally felled Cottonwood. Fortunately I just got a new "Wood Slicer" Blade and put new tires on the bandsaw. So the cutting and planing the Cottonwood went easily. The leather is locally sourced from a friend and both glued and nailed with copper nails. The bottom is just plywood. Knowing Virginia is not just for Lovers but peanut lovers too, I had a chunk of Osage Orange and turned a heavy weight peanut bowl. And boy is it heavy, it won't be skidding around on the table. Btw if you have not had Virginia Peanuts check them out here. And last is a stubby bottle opener. Not like he really needs it but the Bloodwood was really sweet.
