Toaster Tongs $5

A quick and easy project. Getting ready for a craft sale.

Each is a single piece of wood (3/4×7/8×8”). Drill a 5/8 inch hole 1 1/16” from one end, then with a bandsaw make a cut from the other end 1/8” from the edge all the way to the hole. Repeat on other edge. Inside sanded on spindle sander.

Birdseye Maple, Sapele, Bubinga, Wenge, Walnut, Cedar, Zebrawood, Purpleheart

Same thing I have planned to do. Terrific. How much will you sell them for?
