Quick project for my sister’s husband. Made from Maple, Walnut and a tiny piece of Cherry. All joints glued. Finished with mineral oil/bee’s wax. Large enough for the “Deli Size” bagels. Design from an Internet search.

This is very nice.

But how can you cut a bagel without putting your finger through the hole?!

I hope that he lets you do some post-production research (with his bagels). ;)
Nice.

Simple, and the band saw was in action!

Like the multiple woods. I may have to get into bagels again and plagiarize, if you don’t mind.

I am doing a much more exalted project…

...a quilter’s ironing board, with a cabinet including adjustable shelves, underneath…

Yes, it’s what we do. We know who the head of the household is, and their wish is our command.

The ironing board is 24” x 60”, so not a trivial deal.

Finally melting here some, with the temperature getting up to 32 deg in the day.

Thanks for the post, that’s a good one.

What type of hand saw do you cut the bagels with?

^vintage I hope.

Good gift Lew. I’ve started eating them again and I think this could be nice to have. Nice work.

Lew, I don’t know much about how a ‘bagel slicing guide’ works but it looks like you have done a really nice job on it. Congratulations.

Chuck- Thanks! That’s what I said!

Ron- Thank You!

Tony- Thanks!

Albert- Thank You!

John- Thanks! Actually, I guess I should have tried it before sending it to him!

Mike- Thank You!

Hoss- Thanks!

Jim- Thank You! Feel free to steal the design, I did! Noticed on our weather that your area still is a little “chilly”. My Mom used to make quilts but she never mentioned a special ironing board. I’ll have to ask her about it.

Jbay- Thanks! This one should work!

Woodcox- Thank You! If you make one, post it so we can see your version!

Charles- Thanks!- According to the “New Yorker Bagels, there are about 2000 injuries per year when people slice bagels. Who knew??

Klaus- Thank You!

Thanks everyone for all of the views and making this a Daily Top 3! I really appreciate!

Hi Lew, the reason that I suggested post-production research, was mostly for you to be able to use HIS bagels.
Just a thought…. :)

John- That would work but I’d have to drive 4+ hours to do the research!
