It’s the last chapter in the handmade Christmas gift installment.
It’s almost February.
….I think this one was my favorite.
Maybe because it’s the one I use everyday.
Maybe because the combination of wood and leather fits so perfectly on the tub.
Or maybe it’s because I saw it online for $168.
I think it’s because handmade is so much better every. single. time.
Here’s a close-up of the caddy with the leather handles just in case you wanted to DIY your own.
It measures 36″ long and 10″ wide.
My brother made it out of some wood he had in his shop.
You can see how it rests on each side of the bathtub.
(total aside: I wish I had silver metal bathtub feet).
The bathtub is over-sized so he made the caddy over-sized, too.
Here’s a close-up of the leather handles.
He simply cut out a left-over piece of the leather he used to make the leather mason jar mugs.
The leather piece is approximately 7″ long and he attached a handle to each end of the board.
Here’s the reverse side of the board.
He simply added a 1″x 1″x 10″ to the back of each side of the board.
This helps to prevent it from sliding from side to side.
It’s perfect to hold a cup of tea or the stopper or a magazine or handmade soap or a book.
And speaking of books.
Has anyone read any good ones yet this year?
I’m on the hunt. I’m thinking about The Road to Dribbling by Bill Bryson or My Name is Lucy Barton by Elizabeth Strout.
And one more thing. If you are related to me and you’re reading this blog post maybe we should exchange Valentine’s gifts this year.
Just kidding. Maybe. 🙂
