To me the grain looks like a shot from a bottomless portafilter. I'm looking forward to my cocobolo set!

Black walnut for a Quickmill espresso machine. The portafilter has a bit of curly figure in it. Steam/water controls have friction fit walnut caps instead of the plastic chrome ones the factory uses.

Finished. Boring Company Not A Flamethrower wall display mount. There is a large french cleat mount on the back and drilled/recessed for standard wall stud width and a reinforcing oak strip to strengthen everything. The french cleat is also red oak. You could hang a hundred pounds off of it. One of a kind. Holds a real rifle nicely as well. Took a lot longer to make than anticipated.

That is a bit block of oak. Inch and half thick and a foot long, it is a holder for some Lynn Weber bean cellar's (actually an aftermarket that resembles them) and a dosing funnel.

Dave made a wenge cap to my specifications for my Kinu m68 to match my Londinium R, wenge LevTamp, and my incoming (in May) Monolith Flat with wenge Cap. He was very easy to work with and did a great job! It really ties together the grinder with the Londinium.

Tamper handles, one in ash the other in black walnut both for the same tamper. Change you tamper by simply changing the handle. These are for a Pullman Big Step tamper turned the owners size requirements.
