This is my 2nd turned piece. I got a lot of learning to do. But it is fun.
I also found out that hickory is not the best wood for turning…but this walnut was.
I turned the end and decided to make this for the toaster.

Nice!!
But, not a “thrilling” as removing toast with a metal fork ;^)

That there is a thingamajig. It is very simular to a dohicky. :)

Very nice. How well does it work? Does it do toast?

I call them toaster tweezers.
I made some from 1” square oak years ago but those didn’t have the turned end. That one I use every day.
Yes they work for bagels or toast. This one may be a bit too wide for the slot. Haven’t tried it yet.
It is also a bit short and makes the tongs stiff to use.

You think Hickory is a pain to turn, wait till you try white ash ! It’s really beautiful when you get the hang of it.
The grain is wide enough to drive an 18-wheeler through. Need really SHARP tools.

Very close, SCOTSMAN. It’s obviously a flab roll holder. Surgeons working on extreme morbidly obese patients use these to hold the flab rolls out of the way.
