Couple of years ago my mother asked if I could make her a rack to hold her quilters rules. They’re plastic sheets with gradations stamped into the mold, and she has a bunch of them. Well, her friends saw them, and so They wanted some too… very quick and easy projects, simply ran some 8/4 across the TS to form the grooves, routed the edges with a slight roundover, and a couple of maple legs glued and screwed to the bottom, then a quick wipe on coat of Maloof’s magic mixture.

Mahagony and Oak were the primary woods, maple for the runners IIRC.

Nice idea, I made a bunch of holders for domino’s/tri-domino’s for my in-laws this summer but forgot to take photos. I used a 3/8 straight bit in the router table.

That might work for “Dust’n Lint”.
