Or hot dish holder or table center piece holder or what ever you might come up with. Fairly versatile and people love them.
Was given some nice scrap end pieces of oak and mahogany and went to work. These are just a few. Trying to get a stock pile going.
Not too exciting but a great slow time in the shop project. A great training project for the beginners. I’m learning a lot…............
Thanks for looking…............................

I like that. Looks like a good way to practice using my dado set.

Nice use of scrap too.

Thanks everyone!
Ken, I have a blog on my home page on basically how these are made. I glue different woods together to get the different woods to all align, then dado, then cut to strips. I usually have more pieces than I need after the cuts. That’s a good thing in case any break, or for the variations later if you have enough pieces left over.
Size I vary according to my wood selection. I don’t have a lot. They average about 9”x !2”. This would be a good use for the ” Fibonacci gauges”.

Sure, as long as each dado is the same as the next. They have to be straight to fit the best. Square is key.
