Project Information

In anticipation of our yard sale I made 5 oven rack tools. They are all from re-purposed wood. The top one is a sandwich of 'wedgewood pine' and oak, the second and fourth from the top are poplar which started as part of a small, broken table we were given. The other two are from end tables that we once had. (I disassembled them and kept the wood.) When I planed the finish off, I just fell in love with the character of the grain. The poplar ones don't feel so great to me, but there it is.

I traced the stove tool that I previously gave my wife make these. They were cut out on the bandsaw and sanded on my belt sander mounted on its side. They are finished with boiled linseed oil.

Those should sell quickly, Dave. That's some wild grain on the former end table wood!

I love that grain! I'm concerned about how much the poplar looks like pressure treated wood. It's definitely safe though. I probably should have stained them.

Thanks for putting this in the Daily Top 3!

I used an 1/8 inch blade on the band saw, but drilled a 1/4 inch stop hole for each slot. 5/16 inch bit might be better yet. I cleaned the slots up with a rat-tail file and sand paper.
