I made a mistake of showing Steve’s (Mere Mortals) banana holder to the wife, and she said that she would like one for the kitchen counter. So, off to the workshop.. and grabbed a piece of Aromatic Red Cedar that was left over from a previous project. I then took a piece of paper, a pencil and my french curves and drew an outline of a shape that I thought would be suitable, glued the pattern to the wood and cut out the two pieces on my scroll saw (I don’t have a bandsaw). Then I rounded over the edges on the router table and sanded them. To finish the project, I applied orange oil to the wood, followed later by two applications of wood wax. Keep the wife happy and you can spend more time in the shop.
