This is the first one of these that i have tried to make and I am pretty sure this will be this years xmas presents that I send out. This is made from maple that has a little birdseye in it but not much as well as purple heart and some mesquite. The hole is 1 1/2 ” wide and the center of the hole is 6 5/8” from the bottom. I used a router table and chamfer bit to cut a sligt 45 degree angle on all edges. The bottom is also cut at 45 degrees. I finished it with natural watco danish oil.

I guess i can do simple in a pinch. :-)

Sorry it is not a big extravegant piece but I thought it came out all right for a quick project.

I am makeing loads of these, but very simple one wood piece, no lamination. They are going like hotcakes, everone who sees them wants them, and yours is much nicer than mine are so you will have some happy family and friends.

Looks good. These always go over well as gifts. Making some myself.

Who need “big extravagant” when you have great looking, nicely done? A fine project, and regret I’m late to the party.
