Just finished this today. Its a walnut scrap piece left over from the bench I posted earlier. I’ve had it done for a good long while except for the indentation for the small canning/jelly jar to set in. After some helpful tips and encouragement from the forum, I finally got it done. My problem is that I dont have a router and was not gonna pay 50.00 for a 2 1/4’’ forstner bit…....at least not yet! Although I dont have all the tools/toys I’d like, I do the best I can and sometimes—-most times—I have to improvise. LOL
The nuts in the jar are hickory nuts that I harvested from my backyard. I am giving it to my ladylady for Christmas and after the nuts are consumed, she can then use it as a dip holder, jelly holder, etc. The knife can be used as a spreader or cheese knife and ….....anyway, I just thought it would make a nice gift. Thanks again for all the help you LJ’s dole out and thanks for the looks and comments.
PS—the 3rd pic shows it without the jar inset done.
