After dumping the utensils into the sink too many times, I set out to make a new holder. The first picture is it and the 4th picture is the one it is replacing. That is a beautifully painted pottery one that my wife painted, but you can see the problem with the little base and wide top. The last two pictures are a practice one made from some wood that was rough all through the turning. I don’t know what it is , but it made a nice rustic utensil holder for someone.
I don’t know what the wood is that I used for the good one, but it was very green and it finally cracked in the bottom while drying out on the lathe. It is filled with epoxy and dust. It is finished with Clear wipe on poly and salad bowl finish on the inside. A shot of the log is below if anyone might know what that wood is. It is from this area in Grand Rapids but I don’t know who dropped it off.
It is some real fine turning wood, I had 12 foot long strings flying off of it.
Here is the log;
