Had a couple of days off and did my functional thing. The bucket is spalted something that was punky till the cows come home. It will hold all of our wooden spoons and such on the counter. So far, 1 coat of wipe-on poly. About 3/8th thick all around.
The little one is.....you guessed it, a salt box. This on goes to auction for my fish of a daughter. It is more English walnut with 2 coats of wipe-on and will finish with Arm-r-Seal. Paired with pictured Black walnut peppermill. I have way to much walnut. Cheers and let's hear it !!
