I had been holding onto the base piece of Walnut this w/the live edge for something.. hahaha. ok, I’m a hoarder..
Just scraps/leftovers/cutoffs, etc. of Walnut. Top and bottom’s are a bit less than 1/4”. Good nuff for a 28 hole, pen/pencil/letter opener, etc. stand. Thnx for the looks, good/bad/ugly…

Great display, Roger! Love the live-edge. Gonna share it with my son. He’s thinking about turning pens to sell. He turned his first pen Tuesday! Thanks for sharing.

Looks great, Roger! Hmmm… I’ve been hanging on to a piece of walnut (with a live edge no less) waiting on an idea for it. You (or Jim) may have inspired me.
