I made this with some mahogany scraps that I had. Not too difficult, but I have room for improvement. I’ll make some more like this before I attempt any end grain ones.

Thanks Sandra and Marty. You guys have already seen this over on stumpynubs, but I thought I would post it as a project.

Thanks Eddie, I think.
Jack, that’s what I was thinking. I think I’ll make them for the firefighters who work for me next Christmas.

Nice work Bill, really turned out great.

-- Jeff - I have not failed. I've just found 10,002 ways that won't work.

It looks great, like the wood combo and the grooves around it. Great job!
