Another goofy idea that does seem to make sense and was fun and easy to make.

Delightfully plagerized from here.

Freehand form design, cut out on the bandsaw and sanded the edges smooth. Thirteen inches long, three inches wide.

Oak, walnut and paduak. Tightbond III. Spray coated with shellac.

The wife does seem to like it which was a bonus…....................

Cool wood pattern. I keep looking at the big part of the cutoff/ leftover thinking you might as well make something else from that.

Taking it up a notch, I see. Nice interpretation of the kitchen gadget I stole.

This just goes to show that, “two wrongs does make a right”!!! Lol.

Very clever!

I use a Pot Holder… LOL

Oh, after looking at that, couldn’t you do the same thing by:
1. Cut a slot into part of the end maybe 1” deep. (Middle of the bottom)
2. At the inside end, Cut more of a slot to the Left… as well as to the Right…
3. Resulting in a “T” slot…
4. Now you get the oven shelf into the “T” and from that location, go backward and forward just by pulling or pushing?
5. One slot does it all!
6. Wouldn’t that work too?


Thank you.
