Whenever the spirit moves me, I’ll make cookbook stands for kitchen clients. The wood used is pieces left over from the cabinets. These are given as gifts.

They are easy to make, and show the client you appreciate them.

The first is made from curly maple, also known as tiger maple, with a walnut inlay.

The second is a birds eye maple, with rosewood and maple feet.

The third is walnut.

I enjoy making them, as they’re quick and let you play with design.

ALL of our lumber is purchased from Hearn hardwoods, in Oxford, Pennsylvania.

Rick Hearn, and his wife, Pat, has become personal friends of mine, thru our dealings with them. These are GREAT people and are quite passionate about their wood.

Hi Wayne,

Did you get a haircut, or are you wearing it different?

I have a couple boxers. I hear you start to look like your pets after a while. How long have you had your dog, because you are developing a look. LOL

They are fun, and the ladies seem to appreciate them.

A nice give away. You must be very expensive to give away such nice items. LOL

I remember some of you earlier posts Lee.

Interesting gift idea – and more to my scale than your other fantastic projects.

About 3 years. I guess it is all it takes.

Hi Karson;

The truth is I don’t really make them for the client, I make them for me. The clients are just a quick way to get rid of them.

Lee

As for being expensive, that’s the word on the street.LOL

Are these slanted or is the back higher than the front? Thank Lee!

Hi Don;

They somewhat smaller in scale huh?

But still challenging enough to be fun.

It’s gifts like these that get you remembered and respected such that you can afford to give away gifts such as these :)

Hi Damian,

Yes, I suppose that’s the circle. My wife doesn’t get it, but it comes back in many different ways.

I believe people don’t talk too much about the things they’ve paid for nearly as much as they do the things they haven’t paid for.

And it’s also when you have the most freedom to create.

She also doesn’t get; “it’s not the money, it’s the money”.
