Soap holder in oak, soap dish, disk platter for soap
Soap holder bowl from german oak.
I handturned this little soap holder from lacal oak so called Spessarteiche. I turned little grooves into the bowl in order to have the soap foam and water drip into. Oak is very restistant and strong so the wet condition does not affect its durability. You can extend the lifetime and beauty by removing too much water quickly after you placed the soap into the holder. The piece is roughly 10-11cm in diameter and 2,5-3cm high.
You can see in the last picture how a holder looks like after approx. one year usage.
Hint: The acid inside of the oak can cause some soap decoloring so you may have a white soap having brown rings.
