Each spring, the school in which my Grand-kids attend, has an auction to assist is supporting activities for the children. Donations come from parents, local business, and of course, Grand-dads. Each year, i try to make something that may catch the eye of some of these auction attendees.
In the past, I have made chess boards, cutting boards, pens & pencil set & even wooden flashlights.
This year I made two pizza peels with matching cutters. The wood used is Western Maple, figured, accented with strips of walnut. The finish is several coats of pure mineral oil on the boards. The cutter handles were turned from the Maple and then finished with CA glue.
I also made four screwdriver. Oak, Osage orange, Red Gum Eucalyptus, and Claro Walnut were my choices for these. Again, CA glue is the finish.
