If you look carefully you'll see a shallow finger indent underneath, just enough to make it comfortable in hand. I haven't thought yet about what sort of pants it should wear but most likely something simple that can drop inside a pocket.

    Yep, definitely a good idea to make more of those. Great job.

    thankyou very much. I like to think it's about making something look good but workable as well.

    I agree, it was a bit of an experiment that turned out well for a change. I've kept a template so might make anothery some time.

    I hear what you're saying. My wife's an architect so I've had 'form and function and truth in materials', the post modernist's mantra, smacked into the back of my head with a rolled up newspaper every morning before I go to the workshop.
