This was one of those spur of the moment ideas. I was at my sister’s house installing her vanity
when I saw an ugly plastic white banana hanger in her beautiful hand made wooden kitchen. I decided she needed a better looking banana hanger.
I took a day off of work and made a bunch from scraps that I had.
Rather than just screwing the two pieced together, I decided to try a sliding dovetail. I thought it would be neat to be able to take it apart and store it in a drawer if it wasn’t being used. That worked on two out of the 5. The other 3 needed a few screws in them because they were a bit loose.
From left to right in the first picture we have: butternut, goncala alves or tiger wood, curly maple, chenchen, and butternut again.
I threw some Watco danish oil on them and they were good to go.
