This one’s made of a single block, instead of a laminate: a solid lump of (slightly) spalted beech. I wasn’t sure how well the shape would turn out – I just cut it freehand without a plan. Ended up ok in the end though.

Finished with one coat of boiled linseed oil and two coats of beeswax.

I like your design and the spalted beech. The little dip for your finger gives it a nice clean look!

I would say you have a good eye for band saw work. The wood looks good too.
