    If you use 3/4" it may be okay but I prefer hardwoods. I have had problems with mdf breaking others use it alot and are very happy with it.

      Like Mike, I believe it's more of a durability issue than a safety issue. MDF is relatively soft and I would question it's ability to hold up well over time. Solid wood would certainly be a better choice, but it might be worth testing out. I would probably make a couple and try them out for a while before making any to sell or give as gifts.

          I have used yardsticks to make oven pullers. Some full size and some half-size to be used in a toaster oven. Works pretty well for me.

              Forester - I use hardwoods only and don't put a finish on them. I think that MDF is too soft especially on its edges to stand up to oven pull use. Look in the archives for patterns by bubbantenn. They are really neat and work up quickly, and can be made from 8-10" long cutoffs from other projects.

              Titch - an oven pull is a gadget with a notch that hooks over the front edge of the oven rack and lets you pull it out of a hot oven without burning yourself. A second notch in the pull lets you push the hot rack back into the oven.

                Look in the pattern vault you will find several patterns there. Basically it is for using to pull out or push in the rack in your oven to avoid an oven mitt. Mostly a novelty thing but sell very well at craft shows.

                    This looks something like your saw? I bought it at lowes about January 2008. It was listed at $170 then, but mine was a demonstration model without the cardboard box, so I got it for $120. I recall they had a cheaper brand listed for $119, which was what I originally planned to buy. I don't recall...

                    Not quite carved, although I did go overboard a bit using my Dremel to smoothen the edges of the 'ropes'. Still they were cut out piece by piece, sanded/smoothed and glued into place....
