  • Casserole trivet

    We will be visiting friends in Connecticut in a few weeks and my wife asked me to make something to take as a hostess gift. I found this pattern after thumbing through a stack of SSWC magazines. Red oak with clear Watco oil finish.

    She likes it and I hope they will too.

          It has been in my wood collection for quite a while and I could be very wrong. I bought this in Illinois and brought it home in 24" pieces in my suitcase. (I often wonder what the TSA inspectors think when they see the wood I cart back to the LA area in my suitcase.)

          I just checked another piece in the garage that I bought at the same time. The label says "Hard Oak". I bought it at menards and I cannot find this on their website. Everything they have close to this 3/4" x 8" x 4', is "red oak".Go figure!!

          Well, whatever it is I like the color and the even grain.

          Would red oak be somewhat more red than this?

            Best guess is that it is Red Oak. The other common version around here is White Oak and the two are generally easy to tell apart. Both could be considered "hard Oak", but I don't ever remember seeing any white at my Menard's.
            When looking at the clock at work--the correct time is:
            Too early to leave, too late to call in.

              I am thinking that the light comes up from the base and when the cutout is turned it also changes the pattern on the base.

              Nope just went back and watched again. Sure would like to find some pattern for that.

              Wolfenstein was, is still great. back in the early 80s I worked as a repair tech for Covox. We made Sound Master sound cards for Apple, Commador, and IBM. Part of the system was voice recongition. Lost many hours trying to get voice commands to work with the card.

              I looked at their website and it appears to me it is for local pickup only. You would have to call and see what can be done but I bet it would double the price....
