Every now and then I like to take a break from Intarsia. Mike has my wooden store bought silverware strainer on his bench and uses it to hold his pencils and such. I wanted one too! So what does a woodworking gal do? Make one, a better one, a Pretty one! Then I made another one! And so the addiction begins.
pic #5 is the store bought that inspired me.

Nice looking design and useful too! I could stand to make a couple of these myself, one for the shop and one for the desk.

Hmm interesting designs there, Terri. I especially like the one on the left. Something about the difference in triangle height gives it something extra. Good post.

Both very nice, but my fav may be the one on the left. I also like using a combination of woods to add interest.

A little change of pace never hurt anyone. As long as you didn’t get a splinter. A simple project nicely done.

I would think that these have a southwestern feel to them…
