This is a cookbook holder that I put together for my wife for this past Mother’s Day. She had been using an old plate stand that I absolutely could not stand! The majority of the holder is made from ambrosia maple while the edge is wraped in black walnut. I finished off with a couple coats of poly sprayed on and some felt pads on the bottom. This was my first time spraying anything but I think it came out ok. Oh, by the way, the little one helped me present it to my wife… as you can see. Well that’s it, let me know what you think…

Nice wood selection and construction. The trim really sets off the ambrosia maple.

Very nice! love the wood.

Great simple and functional design.

My only suggestion…..You might trade out the felt pads for some rubber ones. If your wife is like mine the counter will be covered in STUFF and the felt will pick it up. Less chance of hurting rubber ones.

Keep it up.
