  • 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.

            Too early to leave, too late to call in.

              When people come into ArtCrafters and ask about a scroll saw, I say it is similar to a sewing machine except with small blades.

              Me - also! I drove from Memphis to Dallas yesterday in heavy rain all the way. Could not use the cruise control. My leg was in a knot.

              Having said that, I can sit still at the scroll saw for about an 30 minutes at the most before I have to move around; On the lathe, I can also stand in...

              I've lured a husky neighbor with the promise of a turned pen. Now we are just waiting for the d()*& rain to stop so we can get the minivan around to the back steps into the basement, and get it down stairs. All my neighbors know that, when they help me - they walk away with a priceless work of art...

              Scrappile I like that engine hoist. When we moved into this house back in 96 One of the first things I did was put a loft in the garage and provided a place to hang a chain hoist for working on my car. The roll around hoist has some advantages over my setup.

              I have two variable speed controllers one is on my Digital embroidery machine(inherited from my Mom) and I also have a Rampower carver with the electronic foot pedal. The variable speed on both of those gives much more control. especially on the power carver....
