Had a request for a series of egg racks.
These are to be kept on the kitchen bench so that there is access to room temperature eggs whilst baking…
The designs were left up to me.. but there needed to be 2 6 egg holders, 2 6 up and 6 down egg holders, 2 12 egg holders and 1 16 egg holder…7 all up…
1.. hexagonal New Guinea Rosewood tumbling block trivet with 6 holes drilled at the junctions of the cubes.
2.. 6 holes drilled in a board and then edged.
3.. double decker with turned risers.
4.. quilted Queensland maple.
5.. different colour stringing between the holes and framed..

Thanks for dropping by…

Wow, this is a new one on me.
Yours sure do look pretty though. If I was an egg I would be proud to live there.

Now I will know if someone asks.

I think No 3, the double decker is the most practical.
Hey ! have you tried to laser an egg yet?.

The Chinese will not be impressed !!

Interesting site is the Lumberjocks post at zero hour, get reply’s within minutes !!

Its so hot here during the day, after about 0730 the cast iron gear is almost untouchable, and until 1400 when some shade arrives !

well i think this would qualify as having all of your eggs in one basket…or you could say your eggs are racked…so as they say in a pool game…RACK EM….....but use a gentle stick on these…or you may be just have things scrambled…oh, great egg boards buddy.. i like the designs, right oh mate…i do i do..

”How do you rack your eggs?”

YES! A very good idea…

Every morning, I take two eggs out of refrig, put them on the counter top next to the stove… I use a knife & fork to keep them corralled… they sit there about 1/2 hr. before I cook them.

I don’t think I have ever had more than 3-4 eggs to be used at one time… so, ours would have to be small… maybe for six… will kick it around with my wife… sure is simple enough… LOL

Interesting idea & project…

Thank you.

Glad you could hatch a plan
