Space in an RV can get tight quickly. I found that our kitchen table, which is not very big, gets cluttered with TV/DVD remotes, my husband’s glucose monitoring kit, paper, pencils/pens. I decided to use some myrtlewood to build a small organizer for the kitchen table. Nothing fancy – it is about 5.5×10.5 inches and 5.5 inches tall. Used a piece of laminate flooring for the bottom. Finished with General Finishes High Performance. This should keep us a little more organized for our next trip (hopefully!).

Ha…oh, plenty of adventures come along with RV travel!! Little organization in the midst of the chaos is good. :)

Kept this simple but that pretty myrtlewood deserved at least some attention to detail to enjoy the grain pattern that drew me to the piece in the first place. Thanks for noticing!

Source of the wood is the Myrtlewood Factory in Oregon.

Great design. I hope you don’t mind if I copy that for a cutlery organizer.

Cool! I am the lucky recipient of a block of myrtle wood from one of my friends in my carving class. I think he bought it to carve. He asked me a couple of weeks ago if I wanted a piece of myrtle wood to carve. I mentioned that it’s a little hard for carving, and he agreed. So, he gave it to me last week. The grain is pretty straight, but not as spectacular as some specimens I’ve seen. I’ll make something for myself, and something for him, for giving it to me. He scribbled over the price on the end of the block. It’s about 4”X5”X12”. He’s the guy who taught me how to carve eyes, a couple of years ago. I taught him some stuff about wood that he did not know.

Myrtlewood may be my favorite. Can be a challenge but the colors are all so unique.
