Thanks for jolting my memory with you wonderful toaster tongs. I made a pair many years ago, and they are used daily. I was trying to think of something simple but useful to give for Christmas presents. Thanks Again.

What a neat idea. They look great and I bet they get used quite a lot.

Nice idea – well done.

I’d be curious to know how you feel about the Watco Butcher Block Oil. I recently used it on a tortilla press. I had a hard time getting a smooth finish and had to sand between coats a lot more than I do with other finishes. In the end, the finish was still not as smooth as I like.

These are so cool. I’m pretty sure it was your project that inspired my trivets. I remember first seeing toaster tongs (never heard of them before) posted here on LJ shortly before Christmas. I just joined LJ today and wanted to say thank you and.. nice work!!

Have your say...
