    'Nother Toothpick Holder

    My version.

    I thought the one in WOOD magazine looked top heavy so I turned more of an hourglass shape to add width to the base.

    Dogwood with Walnut top finished with Mylands and buffed.

    Cody, well done. I like the different versions I've seen.

    Cool! I've been wondering when the original WOOD Magazine shape might "morph"....

    No photo of the bottom of the cup; did you drill the hole all the way through? Just curious.

    EDIT: Does anybody plan to design (or use) one of these for matches?

    Not this time, lol. The bottom is about 1/4" thick and it just has a simple convex shape.

    Nice holder Cody! Great color but really like the hourglass shape to it! That shape makes it look easier to grab ahold of! Nice work!
