Here are some of the things I made for Christmas this year.
The Whatnot box that I built for my wife. It’s made out of a board that was saved from a bonfire and I believe it is White Oak. The box is 8 ½ x 11 and 2 ½ inches deep. The top is made up of four pieces glued together, and the knob was turned from the same board, I don’t know what caused the stripe on the knob but it is a part of the wood. The bottom is 1/8 inch birch plywood and the accent piece on the bottom side of the lid is a piece of veneer I had on hand.
The wine balancers were made for my daughter’s father-in-law out of the same board as the whatnot box, they are ¾ of an inch thick, 2 ½ inches wide and 9 inches long. I used a chestnut stain on them to match their dining room set.
The pens are the third batch I have made, they are of varying scrap woods and were given to the family members and my daughter’s in-laws.
