This is the latest S&P I made. Purple heart and maple. they are 2” square by 7” high
Picture 2 shows bore of same and stopper.

Some others:
picture 3 is a cherry tree branch that fell in my yard. These simple S&P’s sell very well. 3.5”x2” diam. Mose on bark is neat.

picture 4 is the result of miscalculation. It IS a S&P but huge. 8” high x 3.5 square. Planned on two sets got one big set instead. picture 5 shows big set. I had to put groves in it to be able to hold and use it.

picture 6 is cherry, wormy and very beautiful wood. 2.5” x 8.5” Made 2 sets out of a piece of firewood 15” long. Finish is 3 coats poly and pumice stone/rotten-stone hand rubbed out, then renaissance wax. Type of finish you can’t but down when you touch it. Sold one of these for $80.

@monte National Artcraft. they have websit and sell all kinds and sizes. These are 7/8”. Drill with fostner bit of that size. They require $20 minimum. I think this time I bought 7/8” and 1” 100 each to reach min.

Hi chef. Notice from your projects that you are a turner. I haven’t wanted to do that yet so all my shapes are NOT round. You are welcome tp any ideas/shapes you like.

Thanks for commenting.
