So we needed a little soap dish to complement Melissa's hand made soap cakes. It's made from some 1/2" square strips of something unidentified*, rabbeted and glued. It's really simple, but I was pretty happy with the way it turned out. It would have been much easier to just go to Target, but it was kind of fun. The sucker has about five coats of tung oil, so I'm hoping it handles the moisture well. Only one way to find out!
*Originally I thought they were oak strips, but now I am unsure. Via fuzzy photos, Dave thinks that they are something South American. I may have to do some more research to figure it out. I'll post here if I do!
