This should do okay for dinner rolls, fruit, candy, or a place to put things when you empty your pockets. I wanted to show it with something in it to show scale. I didn’t have any fruit or candy, I had green beans.

I left a handle on it as long as I could for something to hold onto or put in a vise. I used a forstner bit in a DP, then hand tools to scoop out the barrel.

This will be a gift. Ergonomically, this would be terrible if it was full size. I just made it up as I went.

Mahogany frame. Walnut barrel and wheel. Dowel pin axle. Rattle can spray poly. 12” x 6” x 6”

Looks like those green beans are fit for a giant. Nice work.

Love it! AT the first picture I thought it was only 2” or 3”, but the piece sitting on the workbench and on the table show it’s bigger than that.

Hey, at least you used fresh green beans, and didn’t open a can ! :-)
