A knucklehead that I know asked me to “help” him make a trophy for him and his friends to hand down year after year. Beer Olympics? I have no idea. What ever.
Anyway, by “help” I knew he was asking me to make it for him and I wanted to play with my new lather anyway. I have so much to learn, this was a good chance to practice.
My idea was a simple base with a “red solo cup” on top, along with a couple of beer bottles and a ping pong ball. The bottle and the ball are attached with tenons. I used cherry scraps.
This morning I decided to throw a couple of magnets on it so I could attach some bottle caps, which was a quick win. I added black felt to the bottom and applied a few coats of Arm-r-seal.
I don’t want to talk about the last picture. I will, however, say that my second solo cup went a lot quicker.
