toothpick dispensers

Heres some pics of a couple of toothpick dispensers I made from an article in Wood Design magazine. The first one is made from tulip with walnut accents. The second is canary wood and purple heart for the finial with walnut insides. I made the second one slightly different in that I let the top lid overlap its hole by about 1/16". I don't like seeing the gap like in the first one that allows for easy removal. This is what the article calls for. I liked the overlap better. They are fun to make and work very well.

very nice works!

I''m new to the site, not to turning. I like them both. I guess it comes down to individual taste, and I'd give the least of these to my MIL.
Justa.

Hello Firehawkmph I think this is a very interesting piece. but why don't you give the general measurements so that we can copy (I mean compliment) you. I'm absolutely taken with it and genuinely would "like a try"

If you want to see the tut on this how to do it, it comes from a mag, go here and go to the turning vids there are 3 vids from start to finish. LB

toothpick dispenser

Thanks Little Buddha,
I did get the plans from wood magazine. I didn't realize there was a video(s) on it. It explains everything, just like the magazine article.

great looking items

Awesome toothpick holders Very impressed with the 2nd one. I'm with you, the lid that over hangs looks a lot better. IMO

Nice job and well done. I made one of these when the magazine first came out, only I use mine for wooden matches. Mitch
