Did my last craft show of the season. Successful enough each time to cover expenses, time and I got a new table saw out of the deal. It’s year round but I ain’t good with colder weather so I’m holing up for the winter to restock. These do pretty well. Made my first one for the missus. Being 95% visually impaired, when she sliced cheese it looked more like when I go after a log with a chainsaw. She loved it and it gets a lot of use in our home.

Great way to use up scraps too.

Happy Holidays

These are fun projects. For small scrap wood projects you did a nice job on the designs.I just made a few myself. This time I decided to try the chrome slicer. I hope they look OK because I have a huge box of them

The chrome looks pretty good especially paired up with darker woods. I prefer the black ones but that’s just my taste.

They look very nice, Don. And, you’ve wrinkled my brain. Thanks. Twice, in less that a half a hour, you’ve wrinkled my brain today. You’re my muse.

Re: the expansion concerns. Dandroid, I’m kinda new too but the one I made my wife has pieces crossing like that and it’s been in use for quite a while now. It’s been wet, dried, wet and dried, oiled, repeat pretty much every week and so far no issues.
