My mom had requested this type of holder for her kitchen table, I thought it would make a great Christmas gift so I made a second one for my sister and her husband as well.

The first holder is made from some good ole Texas Mesquite, I had cut down from my back yard several years ago. The second one is made out of some scrap walnut I had laying around. These were quick two day builds each.

They measure 7 1/2’ x 7 1/4’ with a single coat of tung oil and a couple coats of wipe on poly, satin.

It’s nice looking and a good idea. All in one is the way to go. I’ll have to make one for our house.

Thanks Tony and Dave.

Dave, I used a rabbit joint on the bottom side walls for the bottom to slide up into. 3/8” thick walls.

Simple, clean lines so they work with pretty much anything short of formal china. Great idea and well done.

Thanks, Earl, Charles, Rick, Tom, Rob and Jim.

Tom and Rob, I’m peeking my head into a whole new area in woodworking, just starting to get my feet wet, the area I’m stepping into is Pyrography, I just dropped just over $200 in new burning tips to go along with my Colwood burner. If you don’t know what that is, it’s wood burning Pyrography I believe is Latin for “writing with fire”. Go take a google look at some of the images, you’ll be amazed at what you see.
