I needed what I call a filler project. During the construction of the front of our house and making the gate and Blondie’s Bridal Chest there are times you need a little break. Sometimes you don’t have enough time to get deep into the next portion of the project. Being I don’t sit still or sleep much & work seems to get in the way at times I decided to make this. LOL

Now I didn’t come up with this project, I saw the plans in Wood Magazine I believe. If any of you fellow LJ’s want these plans, send me your personal Email and I’ll be more than happy to send them.

The project is made out of Blue Oak and Walnut from the scrap bin. The Gap is 3/16 and at the bottom there are 4 maple dowel rods. It’s finished with Salad Bowl finish sprayed with my Earlex 5500.

It is …................wait for it….....

A Bagel Cutter.

Place the bagel in the pocket and the knife rides in the slot all the way down to the dowel rods. I took this one to work being I work the grave-yard shift at LAX airport and we seem to get bagels frequently.
Thx or looking….

As always all comments welcome

Now that is a great idea and pretty simple to make too. Would make a great gift.

Ditto – I thought a model hoe bucket because of the hole at top or some new type of fishing hook .

Another LJ stumped. Nice looking project. I see a hole at the top, is that for picking it up? How do you hold it when cutting the bagel? Just a thought, maybe a dowel in the hole to hold on to when cutting the bagel.
