I see a lot of these around lately and I had some scraps laying around the shop so I figured I would give it a shot

Maple and walnut, and walnut and maple. I used HHG when laminating. Finish is Arn-R-Seal and wax

Another nice project Joe. You’re gonna have to rezone your house soon to commercial. You pump em out man.

Thanks! I’ve also made about 25 pens and a good 16 to 18 cutting boards in the last 6 weeks. Once the weather gets warm I’ll really be able to start cranking stuff out.

I like the concept. Do you have to be careful to remove both glasses at the same time to keep it balanced?

It will go out of balance, but the holes for the glasses are larger than the slots cut, so the glasses kind of bottom out in the holes. You need to lift them up a bit to slide them out. In the next one I may do a slightly larger hole and a slightly smaller slot.

This looks great!

One suggestion I might lend is to wait until the slots are cut for the glasses before you route your edges – that way you can also route the slot and make it look really nice!

Great build
