Cigar Ashtray


Cigar Ashtray


I made this cigar ashtray from white oak that I received from an arborist in the Tampa area. It is about seven inches in diamater and three inches deep. This wood is pretty plain, very little character. I left the bark in the small inclusion on the side and filled a small crack with a little topaz lace mixed with a silver glitter.

The center of the piece is also topax lace. The finish is spar poly – about four coats. This is one of my favorite pieces because it is so functional. When I sit down after a hard day at the lathe I want a dry martini and a cuban cigar. This ashtray reminds me of what my life should be about. Indulgance and instant, self gratification. If only.
