Well here is a toothpick holder that was in Wood magazine. I thought I would give it a try. Pretty easy to do. A few extra steps in turning but thought it came out rather nicely. I already have orders for 9. So the lathe bench better get dry. It is made of mahogany. The finial is stained with minwax ebony stain. It is finished with Antique oil. It is 3 7/8" tall and 5 3/4" tall with the finial.
