A little background.......

I reckon I have pottery shave gear AD. I have been fortunate to travel a great deal both in the U.S. and abroad and have always been interested and amazed at the geological differences of the areas I visited. The colors and textures in the pottery remind me of the varied colors and composition of landscapes from the Swiss Alps to the Grand Canyon and many other places in between. The pottery not only brings back fond memories, it is fun and functional. Nothing quite as comfortable than a scuttle of warm lather on a cold winter day.

I constructed it out of pine. I usually use hardwoods such as oak, cherry, walnut, etc. However, I had neck/spinal surgery back around Thanksgiving and am now getting back up to speed. I had to use the lighter weight pine wood. I plan to build another from oak or walnut at the towards the end of Summer.

Nice rack, Ed, and I like your scuttle/bowl collection too. I treasure my few scuttles; so far I have resisted the pottery AD pretty well.

Nicely done, it has that old vintage barn look going on (which I really dig).
