I’m on vacation this week and have been busy in the shop. The cutting and breadboards are maple. The lazy susans are alder. The boot pulls and the Grab-O-Racks are also malpe and alder. The oven pulls I stole from a Charles Neil news letter. Thay are the handiest thing in the kitchen. I took a few down to my local watering hole and they were a huge hit. Sold them for 5 bucks apiece.

Great products! Excuse my ignorance, but what is a “boot pull” and a “Grab o Rack”? also an “oven pull”?

A boot pull is used to help you remove your boots or shoes. You hook the heel of your boot in the open end and while stepping on the back of it you pull your boot off. The Grab-O-Rack (my trem for it) is used to pull out a hot oven rack. Use the notched end to push it back in.

Grab-O-Rack what a great idea! I will have to make a few for the wife. Don’t you just love it when you can get projects done?
Keep on going.
