Can anyone guess what this little vessel looks like? I was wondering if its obvious what it is so I wont tell you, you have to guess. I had somebody who wants me to make 30 or 40 of these and this is the prototype.

Its made of Zebrawood its about 4” tall and the bore is 1/2” diameter and just deep enough for a dollor bill and the dollar sticks out a little so you can pull it out. The finish is danish oil. Thanks for viewing, Andy.

I changed my mind…I’m not going to think about it anymore. It’s definitely a shotgun shell.

Cheers, Jim

They will be handed out to customers at a company skeet shoot. They will be engraved “Prime NDT Skeet shoot 2016”. I work for Prime NDT and my boss wants me to make these. Im giving this one to him to bring to the guy thats gonna laser engrave them.

Very nice. Ok, I am going to steal this idea from you as well. And I am not inclined to give you credit either. Ok, maybe a quick reference.

Have your say...
