Serving Spoon Soap Dish

     My wife and I have been putting up with a crumby bamboo soap dish by our kitchen sink.  It was a small and simple bamboo dish  that never properly dried out and was frequently knocked off the counter by the cats.  While on vacation in Maine we found this silver-plate serving spoon in a vast barn turned antiques shop.

  I started by polishing up the silver and bending it into shape.  Next I mounted it to small piece of scrap walnut that I shaped for a base.  Once the soap dish was together I mounted it just over the edge of our large cast iron sink so it won't get the counter wet.  Viola!

Our Kitchen is becoming quite the eclectic place.
