These are a couple of egg cups I made for my friends John and Jim at Dead Tree Salvage in Casa Grande,Az. This is a short cut off piece that was on the scrap pile and I was going to get one egg cup out of it. Well, I shorted the tenons used to hold them and was able to get 2 of them out of it. It is male pistachio wood with just a very little sap wood remaining in each one. There is some black epoxy fill in each one as they were pretty rough when I got into the center.
The center is standard size but I fooled around with some different looking yolk catchers on them and they vary from my template on the outside quite a bit.
They are finished with clear gloss lacquer..
John, if you view this one, you’ll get your cups next January!!
