    Different Take on Toothpick Holder and a Bowl

    I made three more of those toothpick holders today varying each one a bit but staying somewhat close to the WOOD design. Then I tried thinking out of the box, er toothpick holder, and came up with the Shroom version. It's Hickory with CA on the bark edges, Mylands and wax on the rest. LOML claimed this one before I even finished with it.

    The bowl is Red Elm crotch that I roughed out three weeks ago and DNA soaked. It opened up along the bark inclusion so I again tried something new (for me). I inlaid a Walnut butterfly patch. It actually helped hold the side together but was a bugger to chisel out the recess since I had already finish turned the bowl. It was very springy and I couldn't chop with my chisels...I had to pare it and Elm is pretty tough stuff.

    Those are both too cool, Cody. Great job. I'd hate to have to pick a favorite, since both of them are great.

    Wow Cody, I like the shroom and the bow tie. I also like it when my LOML claims a project as she's the one whom I try the most to impress.

    I like that better than the one in the magazine. When the wing works again I'll have to give that a whirl.

    That is pretty cool Cody. I like the Shroom. I love the way the bowtie seems to be hold the crack together on the bowl. Well done.

    Now that is what I call "thinking outside of the box". That is one great toothpick holder Cody.

    Would you mind if I "borrow" your idea. I have turned a lot of shrooms but never seen anything like that.

    Again, great holder and bowl also.

    Have at it, Bobby.

    You might want to check back issues, though and make sure WOOD magazine doesn't hold the design rights on turned mushrooms.
