    Walnut Cigar Ashtray -PICS ADDED NOW

    I saw this thread by Bill Wyko, a very accomplished segmented turner, over on SMC about a month ago and decided it would be a great project for a Christmas gift for my BIL. He enjoys a good cigar with a drink out on the patio during the summer months. Hopefully this will keep the ash off the ground for the kids to get into. Made from a scrap bin cutoff of 5/4 walnut, it is about 7" round and 3" high. I was going to try and the slot for the cigar on the router table but after some tense moments on trials with scraps and just about not being able to count to ten with fingers, I took out my old ryobi dremel knock off and "carved it out" Finish is friction polish as that is what Bill Wyko used on his. He is a cigar smoker and said it works well. Just finished it tonight. Comments are encouraged please....

    Won't let non-members look at it. That leaves out many of us here.

    Sorry guys, I forgot my pics as well. They are uploaded now. As to Bill's ashtrays, the pics aren't that important...I just wanted to give him credit for giving me the idea, but here are Bill's ashtrays so all can see them.

    I like the simple design of your ashtray more than Bill's. Nice work.

    That's a really cool and practical idea, for those who partake of the smoke, as it were. I'm gonna be stealing that idea. Nice job Jeff.
