I thought I’d make 5 more combo tools for the show on Saturday as the first one sold right away. I added a rare earth magnet to these and made them a little longer. The top one is Chestnut, then Jarrah, then Mahogany and the last two are Koa. They are 5/8” x 1 1/4” x 11 3/4” long and finished with Danish oil and buffed and waxed.

Cheers, Jim

You’re fortunate to get some beautiful Aussie Jarrah, gorgeous timber, very hard.
Are these gifts or to sell?

I’ve been making toaster tongs and bird headed rack pullers for years. I see now how “outside the box” thinking can show us that not everything has been invented yet. If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, I believe you will be flattered by many fellow LJ’s. Me included. Great form & function. Hats off!

A great mix of 2 oft used kitchen tools, plus refinements.

Does it injure the Danish Oik’s when you squeeze them to get the oil out? :-)

Great idea adding the “toaster tong option”. I was going to make several oven push/pull for a craft show. Do you mind what price you asked. I’ve seen the going rates on Etsy

I definitely could use a pair of these. The handiness of the magnet will work perfect in our kitchen.
On my list.
