  • 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.

    Very nice work. I am sure your hostess will be quite appreciative of your work. Thanks for showing.

          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.

              Timberwolf has a 3/4" blade that is only .025" thick, so it works very well on a 14" wheel. Most 3/4" blades are .034" thick and it is hard to get proper tension o a 14" wheel with them. I tried a 3/4" blade from another company that is only .025" think, but they...

              Spent yesterday cleaning up my shop - (once very two years!) and could not find my 3/4 inch BS wood slicer. Came in and discovered that I ordered and received a 1/2 inch wood slicer two years ago. (I keep the records on my computer.) I know I had a 3/4 inch at one time but finally figured out that was...

              Here’s a thought. I have a friend who does amazing jewelry. She was on Etsy, Pinterest and her own site. One feeds the other. Could you do Pinterest with link to your site?...

              The walls come tumbling down
              well, the cabinets first. I emptied two yesterday and this is what I came home to after the farmers market today. Plus molding was taken down. Emptying lowers Sunday, taking down rest of uppers and by Wednesday will be ready to take out lowers, walls and floor. Need to be done that by Sat for the electricity...
