Made this for my son. He makes custom perfumes and needed a holder for the sample strips. We wanted this to have some style as he takes it with him to shows.

That’s a very nice turning, and the wood grain shows up very nice too.

That is a beauty. The grain is spectacular. Hiding the seam with a feature is a great idea.
