Project Information

This is the first one of these that i have tried to make and I am pretty sure this will be this years xmas presents that I send out. This is made from maple that has a little birdseye in it but not much as well as purple heart and some mesquite. The hole is 1 1/2 " wide and the center of the hole is 6 5/8" from the bottom. I used a router table and chamfer bit to cut a sligt 45 degree angle on all edges. The bottom is also cut at 45 degrees. I finished it with natural watco danish oil.

I guess i can do simple in a pinch. :)

Sorry it is not a big extravegant piece but I thought it came out all right for a quick project.

Who need "big extravagant" when you have great looking, nicely done? A fine project, and regret I'm late to the party.
