Roll-Up Happy Hour Kits for Travel
« on: January 07, 2020, 08:51:36 PM »
Over the long holiday break I had a chance to put together a couple projects to give as gifts that I think my fellow SAK Knights will appreciate.  Each carries a piece of oiled cherry wood as a cheese board, an 8 oz stainless steel flask, and a Victorinox Cheese SAK.  They all go together into a shell cordovan roll-up, easily stored in the trunk of your car, for those impromptu happy hours while traveling. 

One goal I had was to use shells that had clear and obvious flaws, and were thus unsuitable for other kinds of projects like wallets, handbags, watch straps, etc.  The Color No 8 shell was huge, so I was able to build the whole kit from one shell.  The Natural color kit was made by attaching four shells together, but I did it in an irregular way, following whatever their natural margins were. 

Here are the two together, in their rolled-up state: 




Because the cherry wood cheese boards are randomly sized, the two kits are different sizes.  Here is the Color No. 8 kit:




And here is the Natural kit:




Unrolled and ready for use they look like this:




The Natural Kit has room for expansion.  I will be adding a Naked Compact, built by MTo's very own Max Stone, to this one, just above the cocktail forks:




Here are some other views showing the differences and some of the details of the two:

Thanks guys!  They were fun to make, and my two recipients (wife and sister-in-law) were both thrilled. 

I can't wait for a road trip to use them.

Thank you, Rich.  That would be Annie, my 10 year old Shepherd mix and a very sweet girl too.
