These have a secret; They are beer HOGS!Size is about 5/8 inch wide. 2-3/4 tall and 4-3/4 long. Design by T & E designs.They look like an ordinary shelf hog. However with the right angle; they will open your favorite bottled brew. Think upside down.Finish is walnut oil, food grade. I am very poor at wood identification, so “pallet wood” is going to have to do. They are a quite hard wood and will open many bottles before ear failure occurs.If someone can identify the wood species, I will appreciate the answer.
I saw some beautiful work done by Alex Amoruso and decided to try one. Thank you Alex for the inspiration. After I finished the cutting of the pieces I realised that it was not going to look anything like Alex's work. BUT here it is for anyone to look at. Now I realise where I went so wrong, but all the time not intending to make a direct copy.The timbers are Jarrah, Meranti and Yellow Walnut, the finish is Feast Watson Kitchen Timber Oil and then buffed. The Platter is 13 inches in dia. and less than 3/4 thick.C & C welcome and thank you for looking.Bob
