Couldn’t pitch the tiny little offcuts from previous cutting board posting. These took about 15 minutes, but my wife loves them. wenge, yellowheart and Martin Luther King black cherry. Inch and 3/8 brads with the heads clipped off. Brads were .062 dia , drilled a .050 pilot hole about 1/4 deep in the wood and drove the brads in backwards. Belt sanded to 80 grit with mineral oil finish.

My wife already gave them away. She wants her sister Sue to have them. guess they are going to Seattle priority mail !!

Fun, quick little project.

Good use of some cutoffs. And you probably didn’t get to even try them in some hot corn.

The sweet corn has just finished here sorry to see it go.

We had sweet corn for supper last night.
Made some other corn holders earlier this year. From walnut. The little plastic ones we used for years, finally fell apart and I had to run down the basement and make the walnut ones real quick, those I didn’t even sand smooth, only broke the corners.

Great idea! It would have been a shame to throw away such beautiful “scraps.”

Karson … I used regular Lowes brand brad nails and snipped the heads off. They have oxidized nicely. Stainless or even copper nails would be cool too.

These are the handiest things. We used them last night…
