The raw wood was acquired in the forest on the White Mountains of Arizona. It is half of a limb from an Oak tree that termites got inside and hollowed out. Bees moved in and built their hive. There are various holes and veins visible.

The limb was trimmed and then cut in half with a tree saw. It took about 1½ hours to cut it in half. The inside was cleaned out with a pick and old paint brush. Eventually it was washed out with a high pressure stream of water. After drying, it was sanded. The bottom was sanded to make it reasonably stable. Then the 6 holes were drilled with a 1 ½" diameter Forstner bit. Each hole was sanded on the sides with a Dremel drum sander and the bottom with a Dremel flat sander. The holes will fit shot glasses. The whole board was then coated with 3 coats of gloss Varathane polyurethane, inside and out. Burlap was glued to the holes.

Total time to create was ~12 hours.
