I feel a little foolish showing this project with some of the terrific projects that have been posted recently, but here goes -

We are going out this evening and my wife asked me if I could make something simple as a gift for our hosts.

I saw this idea in a shop some time ago, and tucked it away for just such an occasion. It only takes a couple of hours to make these. (If you didn’t guess, this is a salad server set.)

The wood is my favorite Aussie wood, Huon Pine. The finish is a natural food-safe oil.

Something about displaying an eight-fingered set of hands on a woodworking sight just scares me. :-)
