The plan for this this stand came from the book The Essential Guide to Woodworking by Chris Simpson. I bought this book before I started woodworking and have enjoyed reading it. The projects are a good mix of basic through to advanced and are designed to let newbies such as myself practise some skills.
I made this from some scrap rubber wood which was planed to thickness and then ripped into thin strips. These were then edge joined to make two boards which are then face joined with the grain at 90 degrees to each other. After trimming to size I used my router and a fence to cut the grooves. The finish is teak oil.
This was a fun little project to make and I got to practise a lot of new skills.
