Day 40: Shaken not stirred.
The martini glass is Mahogany, the pimento is a small piece of Padauk, the toothpick is a small sliver of sapwood from the same piece of Padauk.
I had a problem hollowing the olive and got it a little too thin which caused the step to break off. To solve this I inserted the stem into the olive and when I drilled the hole for the toothpick I made sure it went through the stem as well. It's secured fairly well with just the toothpick acting as a pin to hold it in place.
