  • Oven Pullers

    I am looking to see if its safe to make oven pullers from MDF ?? I am new to the scroll saw.

    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.

                    I understand supporting the magazine and agree. I just do not find many projects that fit my desires.

                    I would like to see them do a poll with subscribers to find out what type projects people want to see....

                    First off how thick is the board you cut?
                    When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
                    that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
                    for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

                    I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

                    Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

                    Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...
