This is a wedding present I made for my wife’s friend and her fiance. The wedding is this weekend and wifey is one of the bridesmaids. The couples last name begins with a B so I burned the B into the top portion with my little woodburning tool, not bad for my first attempt at woodburning!
It’s made of walnut and joined with poplar dowels. The finish is a mix of BLO/MS/DNA (I learned of this mix from LJ Shampeon and I really like it, thanks brah!), and a couple coats of wax. I also put a ogee profile around the edge and added 5 cup hooks to hold keys. The dimensions are 14” wide and about 16.5” tall. I’m pretty happy with how it turned out, thanks for looking!

Would be even funnier if it was spelled Bieber!
