Thread: More stuff from the last couple months

    More stuff from the last couple months

    I had posted a pencil cup and paper clip holder last week. Well there was also this one that didn't get posted. This one is made from a tree called Acieda or something like that. Landscraping tree. All I know is it's a real pain to work with. Tear out all the time and dusty as all get out. Seems to crack very easy. Both about 4 inch tall and 3 inch wide.
    My wife wanted an Ice cream scoop but had no idea what kind of wood she wanted. So I made 5 differant handles. Wild Cherry, Zebra wood, Walnut, Mesquite and Ceder. She chose the Mesquite which is the mounted one. I kind of like these kits. Now that the handles are made all I have to do is get the kits.

    Nice work, Dennis. The pencil cup and paper clip holder look like accacia wood to me. Does that sound familiar?
