I haven’t made any of these in a few years. I keep promising myself that I’ll make one for myself instead of giving them all away. This time I made three kinds, two oak versions and an oak/walnut version. The two-tone oak are definitely my favorite. They were a happy accident, I had stained the oak watch bands a dark mahogany but hated it. I sanded most of the stain off but the grain remained dark. I re-stained them with a mission oak stain which turned out very well. The last photo shows the progression. I have seven of these done or in progress for a craft show and gifts. Hopefully I’ll end up with one for myself finally. Thanks for looking.
