Merry Christmas!

  Re: (...)
A little mixed media Christmas gift idea that everyone seems to enjoy. Jatoba base. Still need to turn a stopper, but the Jatoba I have isn't thick enough for what I want to do. Have to get some more or do a fancy lamination of some kind.

very neat idea. How did you drill the bottom of the bottle?

It is always the right time, to do the right thing.

That's downright considerate of you, Wipedout. I think the blanks are usually 1.5" x 1.5" x 3" or so. Bet your kitchen looks really nice, Jatoba is nice stuff!

Sorry I did not notice you needed some, but only have a few 1/2 pieces that could be glued up or putting some other colored wood between it.

I've got plenty of jatoba, Arlin. Amazing how much cut offs you end up with redoing a kitchen. I've made lots of thing. Cutting boards etc

Isn't Jatoba called Brazilin Cherry too?

It is a very pretty deep red colored wood and would work great on glue ups I am sure.

Yes it is Arlin. Very dense and hard. Here is a BGE cart I'm building with leftovers. (Only one coat of finish so far)
