Test Tube Vase for the fridge….

My daughter has a web bases store were she sells her water colour paintings and craft items….

A friend of hers say this sort of vase somewhere and of course dad was recruited to assist….

Recycles Aussie hardwood and orgeon cut to size then a 41/64” through hole for the test tube along with a chamfer for the “o”ring. On the back 2×3/8” raw earth magnets glued in with epoxy. The timber is then gloss clear coated a few times.

While the end result does look impressive and it was very nice to help my daughter, it did turn out to be quite a lot of work to organize and complete the project; BUT that’s what love is about…

Great Idea Peter. I like the idea of the “o” rings to stop the tubes dropping through

The test tubes are a fraction over 16mm O.D. so in using a 16mm forstner bit for the hole the test tube has to be encouraged into the hole [breakages] so I got the 41/64” twist drill bit to ream the holes and then the test tube slide through…the “o” ring was the only solution for this old engineer….

Great idea Crowie, but now I’ll have to find a local source of test tubes. ;)
Thanks for posting.
