    Martial Arts Belt Holder

    I made this belt holder for my 9 year old grandson. He attends a martial arts after school program and has been working his way through the belt procession quickly. The wood is reclaimed oak from a friend's pizza restaurant. The karate kicker and "Jacob" were routed in and filled with green tinted epoxy.

    Nice work Pete. I've got 3 nephews doing karate at the moment, I may have to "borrow" that idea.

    My daughter sent me this picture today. Here's my grandson showing off a three of his belts on the belt holder. It's mounted on the wall above his bed. The boards on the left of the belt holder were broken by his karate kicks during his martial arts class tests.
