Dirty or clean?

At times in our home we must ask the question “Are they dirty or clean?”
The dishes in the dish washer that is.
So I decided to carve a thumbs up ….up when clean down when dirty.
Fun little weekend project. One is made from cedar, canary, claro walnut and yellow heart.
Thanks for looking.

OK men here is the big tip, close the door, press the start button, and very soon dishes are clean.

Problem solved and no woodworking interrupted

By the way did you know you can season timber in the microwave? don’t get caught doing it though!!

Nice carving!

good thinking- I’m guessing you have magnets on the back?

Neat idea Jim. I have just started working on carving hands in my projects and need alot more practice. I still remember the Keep on Truckin’ T-shirts that hand this style hand on them. Thanks.

Those are cool, Jim. Looks like a fun project. And if you wife ever gets mad and runs you off…. you can hold one of these out to get a ride.

(..... we have a dishwasher but for the 3 1/2 years we have owned the place it has never been used once. My wife hands me a sponge and a dishtowel and points me in the right direction.)

Thanks for all the comments.
They seem to be popular, every time I get one finished its gone.
I’m waiting on the magnets to arrive and in the mail they go.
I try to avoid the finger when at all possible.
