Needed a small workshop project to interest my visiting grandkids. Had to finish it within the two day visit. Decided on this simple holder designed to set on the fireplace mantel. Straightforward but the major challenge for them was the highly visible hand cut dovetail joint. Used poplar to make the dovetail cutting easier. They got to use bandsaw for the curves and lathe for the turned peg. Results OK. I’m certain their next dovetails will be even better.
