Had the afternoon to myself and found some old fir door jamb standing in the forgotten corner of the shop.
I always wanted to do something with this jamb but I could only get about 16” in between nail holes .
Though a little stand which I needed for some old pewter shot glasses I have had for thirty forty years was the perfect project.
I cut up the jamb material and exposed the edge grain and put some maple strips in the mix .
The legs and bent cross members are some off cuts of jatoba and I made up some jatoba dowel for the accent plugs.
The handlels are done with the router and template and the finish is oil which penetrated the very dry fir very well.
I can finely say I recycled and repurposed some old building material and I am very pleased with the result!
