I had somebody contact me through my website a while back asking about some paper towel holders I made a couple years back. He just had a new kitchen done in hickory and jatoba, and wanted a paper towel holder to go with it. I couldn't find any hickory locally on the day I went looking, so I got pecan instead. The "wave" design is similar to one that he liked on my site.
He gets his choice of one of these two...made from jatoba and pecan, with maple pinstriping:
Pocket screwed and glued, the joinery's not my best, but it'll last as long as I do. The bent wood lamination came out pretty clean, though.
