Another ‘to be donated’ project – mini ramakin holders – at least that’s what I’m calling them cause I don’t know what else to call ‘em :-)

After finishing the wine rack, I started going through my scrap pile and threw these together. No plans, no drawings. Just pilled the scrap on the work bench and started playing. Here is what I came up with. My wife has fallen in love with the flat design and I got a feeling I’ll be knocking some more of these out in the coming weeks for Christmas gifts.

Style 1 (top one in the first pic) – made from birch and edged with mahogany – the birch squares are separated by small pieces of walnut.

Style 2 – base is oak (from an old kitchen door from a demo I was involved with). The inverse pyramid holders are birch – screwed and glued from underneath.

Both designs have routed grooves for holding the small spoons. Finish on both is pure tung oil.

However, I’ve got a question on finish for these. To prevent stains on the wood, I’m thinking a few coats of gloss poly as I don’t imagine the tung oil will prevent staining. Is there any issue in applying poly over the tung oil?

Questions or comments – please let me know!

THanks for looking!

Hey, these are cute, but men, don’t be so stingy with the soup…. :-)
