To compliment the pen & holder (project 7395) I also made a tooth pick holder out of the osage orange. First attempt at one of these & there is room for improvement.

That’s nice looking wood, and toothpick holder. Turned out good (no pun intended)Did you turn those tooth picks too? :)

Tim, to get to the point (whoops),I don’t know if I could turn something as fine as a tooth pick. Thanks for your kind words & thanks to everybody for taking a look.

You didn’t make Osage Orange toothpicks. But the holder is great.

No hole Gator, you lift the lid and the picks come to the top.

This is a gorgeous piece. After seeing your posts I will never look at an osage orange tree as a nuisance tree anymore.

Very nice Grumpy!
I’ll bet Osage orange would make a great toothpick.

Ok, that’s it. I’m going to have to get myself a lathe now (my wife is going to hate you!).
