Third time's a charm? Thanks to Joanne's help, butter dish number 3 is more to my liking. It's smaller and the bottom is more compact. I used a vine texture matt for this one. I'm thinking of a different style handle, maybe a knob, I'll experiment further. Now that I see the more diminutive size of this butter dish, I'm thinking the previous two might be cheese keepers. Ha.
These are the measurements I used but I'll wait to see how his butter dish fires before I finalize my template. Thanks for reading and for all your comments.
