« Part 6: A crosscutting video... Part 7 of Open weave Lazy Larry series Part 8: The glue up »

While I was waiting for the glue to try on the weave blanks….. I made a few wine bottle balancers ..

These were made from some of the European Walnut and Cherry I bought a few years ago..the one on the end is Camphor cut across the grain

The group shown here are all Camphor Laurel… with Australian Pennies inset in them…

A close up shot…

There is no finish on any of them… I will be spraying a water based finish shortly… and then watch the grain pop…

That looks sort of familiar! Any relation to this? Of course, that idea came from your BBQ boards, so I guess the evolution continues. Or maybe you’ve made something like this before and I’ve missed it, or you haven’t shared them with us?
