    Toothpick Holders

    Had a order come in Tuesday for 6 toothpick holders. Two were from a friend who's kids are KC football fans. Anyway One is dyed red the others are natural. I made 4 from maple and 2 from cedar. All finished with Target EM6000 water based lacquer. Need to make a 4 more for the floral/craft store and the art gallery.

    Nice looking, Bernie. I made one of those a few years ago. Don't know what happen to it, but I remember it didn't look as nice as yours.

    I've made a few of those, they were big hits, a bit time consuming, but people loved them!

    Yours look great, I'm sure the KC fans will be happy!
