One last Christmas present for this year, well I may make a pen or two yet.. This is a spice rack, the girlfriend try buying her parents a “store-bought” spice rack when I said “we can make one of those and it will look alot better” Well, I laid it out in Sketchup to get the proportions down and get approval. Here is the result.

The jars have a magnet on the bottom which stick to washers countersunk into the walnut pieces. Sliding dovetails used throughout. Finish is BLO and shellac.

It was a very easy project. The jars came from Farm and Fleet. Wood is pretty much scrap.

Simple but stilish. I’ve always liked elongated dovetail joints. Great job. Thanks for posting.
