BBQ liquids station. Made of white oak with a BLO finish designed to go gray with exposure. There is a keyhole slot for hanging near the grill. Graphic was reversed and printed with a laser printer, then ironed on the workpiece prior to slapping on the oil.

Very nice. That old bottle opener sure brings back memories.

Degoose. I’m not sure. Pam bought this one when we were courting, on a trip to San Francisco. It’s been around 16 years ago.

Hey Doug, looks nice and handy.

You should do a blog sometime on Bordnerizing. I bet some of the kids now days don’t know what it is. Also some hints on slapping on the oil, or ‘oil slapping’ as they say, would be nice.

Steve, that oil slapping is a one sentence enterprise. Put it on thick, let it soak in a minute, wipe it off. With open pored woods like walnut it’s prudent to check back an hour or so later to see if any oil has seeped up to the surface. If so, wipe again.
And Bordnerizing can be summed up with the sentence:
“I cut this damned board three times and it’s still too short.”

Nice job my old buddy. Too bad screw tops ruined the fun for bottle openers.

Grumpy, there’s still some craft brews and such that still use the old-fashion caps, or so I’m told. :-)

Oh, and Steve, you have the tagline that wins the internet, IMHO.
