My holiday gifting just got a whole lot easier.
After my kitchen build, I had some left over countertop material. It was 1 3/4” thick laminated birch. I re-sawed it about 7/8” thick or a little less, loaded the table saw up with a 1/2” dado stack, and cut these out. I sanded, and coated with BLO.
I wasn’t even going to post them as a “project”, because they seemed so freaking… nothing. But after my mother saw them, she got very excited and wanted some for herself. My sister wants some, as do several of my friends. etc etc…
The point is that it is funny what we as woodworkers see as “just using up some cutoffs” is something amazing and “oh my god that’s awesome” to non woodworkers. When right next to these is my current “best” project, the folding step-stool from a few months ago. Go figure.
