I made this for a my Room Mates father. Again this is 100% recycled wood. I found the Mahogany down the road, there was stacks of it. I just did not have the strength to carry it all. One bundle was about 60 lbs. It was from a very old deck that was torn up. If they only had patience. I am sure with a little TLC the Deck would have looked amazing. There was some Yellow pine mixed in also.

Nice looking ash tray!

Do you use a special finish that will not be effected by the heat from the ash/cigar?

I just let them go with a little Tung oil. I have checked with everyone and found no good coating, but the best advice I got was from a Cigar guy who said that ” The burns just add character!”

Great job. Nice recovery of the decking. I like how you plug the screw holes to add an extra design element with the dots.

Keep it up.

Nice candy tray. Great use of recycled materials.
