Nice and easy project. Good use for scraps. I think I got the idea from a magazine a while ago. You need to watch the thickness as they get hard to pinch if too thick.

Inspired thought…Grill tongs made from Hickory???


Post Edit… Spalm, thanks for the link to Karsons post… It’s funny how some things are inspiring when they hit you at the right time.

Very Nice. Toaster Tongs are also what I’ve known them as.
