A family of squirrels (Oven Rack Pusher/Puller) found the pattern in Woodcraft (Aug/Sept Issue)

I used 3/8” stock, Walnut, Cherry, Oak and Red Gum. Cut it on the band saw and used drum sanders to smooth the edges, then a 1/8” round over with the router. Sanded to 220, drilled for small maginet. Finished with 3 coats of Butcher Block Oil. These are about 11” long.

Hind sight in cutting them out and sanding, need to use a fostner bit for the tighter radiuses.

Most will be gifts for Christmas.

Thanks for looking.

Thanks Dave, they were fun to make also and quick. I figured the time was about 45 minutes each, and I think if I were to use the fostner bit I could get that time down.

Thanks Van. And these actually fit good in the hand. And they don’t bite.

Thanks Jack, I made a purchase at the end of October, which was mainly thin stock. I do save odds an ends of scrapes though.

I have a multiple drawer cabinet in the shop, and i started to through small cut offs in, separating the types of wood. Have some projects in mind, and maybe some more scrapes can be used up.

That’s funny to me…A few drawers to hold your scraps…I started with a few bins for the cutoffs, now they rule my shop…I can’t even get to the first stored cutoffs without a major dig…lol…Good luck with that storage…lol…I can’t even make that many projects, that would diminish that pile…

Jack, that cabinet I has 24 drawers in it 16” x 10” an 22” deep. I am storing other stuff in it but I had some that were empty, and I figured I could clear some of the hardwood drops of the miter station.

Thanks SteveN, when I saw the article, I said those would be neat.

Thanks Ivan, guess some folks can’t have enough of those kitchen items.
