My goal for this oil holder was not just to have a spot for oil bottles but, specifically, four bottles… the four chosen oils for my daily Essential Reflections.
When I do my Reflections, I have one oil for each direction, east, south, west, and north… but that is another story. For the holder, I wanted the holes to also be in the four directions. So, I designed it and I sent Rick to the shop to make it work.
I wanted the holes to be large enough for both 5ml bottles and 15 ml. To make life easy for the build, I asked for the log to be cut in two, with the holes going through the top half and then re-joined to the bottom. What I had forgotten about was the sliver of wood that would be removed during the cut, so lining the pieces up to look like one piece was a little tricky.
Rick put a sealer on all of it, to keep the bark and the holes smooth.
End result: perfect for my Reflections and I have had several requests for a similar one. So far, this is a one-off.
Would love to get some tips to perfect the idea. Thanks
