Something different for the Thanksgiving dinner table … the ‘drumstick’ is a hard maple offset turning, while the back and base are birdseye maple.

I can’t take credit for the idea … this project was the brainchild of Tim Yoder, featured a few weeks ago on Popular Woodworking’s YouTube channel ( ).

Thanks! Full disclosure: The acorns and pine cones were SWMBO’s idea … she has a very artistic touch (you should see her quilts, runners, wall hangings, etc.).
