(Yet Another 2 Cups of Coffee and a Packet of Biscuits Please)
(Although, as you can see, I have a bowl of sugar here – showing how versatile this design really is)

I made this for some friends – I think this is my sixth one of these (I ran out of fingers counting) – they’re fun to make and, as my wife says (she is one of the staunchest supporters of my work)- ”At least it’s useful”!

Not much more to say really – it is what it is – a useful tray/trug for carrying your two cups of coffee and optional accoutrements out into the garden for imbibing at close of play (or at other times – i said it was versatile).

The sharp-eyed amongst you might recognise the verticals from this previous work

Fumed oak (although some rubbed down to give the “intermediate” effect I’ve been trying to get for years), beech, ash.
Finished with linseed oil.
Size: 1 cup of coffee wide, 1 cup of coffee or a packet of crisps tall, 2 cups of coffee and a packet of crisps long.

Well I don’t think it’s my best work, but it does, I think, have a certain simplicity without necessarily being simple.

“Fooling you” into thinking it’s elegant will do for me until i can actually do “real” elegant :-)
