    Nope...Can't tell you what you should charge as your location will dictate your prices. however, that being said I charge $6.00 for ones that have no fretwork. If i embellish them I charge $8-$10.00 depending on complexity of cutting. I personalize them for $10.00. BTW I stack cut most of mine.

            I made some out of walnut and maple 1/2 inch thick from a pattern by Steve Good. Charged 7$ for them. Funny thing, at a craft show I did it seemed like only people over 50 yrs old knew what they were. Guess you can't use em in a microwave!

              I make mine from hardwood scraps using patterns by Bubba from Tennessee (see the pattern vault) and charge $5 each. You're right Terry, only us seniors know what they are but with a bit of explanation about reducing burns, even the youngsters buy them.

                I have a hardwood oven puller shaped and painted like an Amish lady. I paid $12 for her at an Arts & Crafts show.

                  Do you'll think Poplar would hold up for a oven puller, I have some 1/2" Poplar I was thinking about using.

                    I have made them from Poplar and it works well. If there are narrow/fragile spots I'd recommend 3/4" thick though. You can always laminate (glue up) 2 pieces together for more thickness.

                      What kind of wood are most of you using for the oven pulls? I just made one with 1/2" poplar and I get too much break out when the drill bit comes through and that causes problems on the small cut outs. Thinking about trying some 3/4" red oak, maybe some good quality pine, the ones I want to make for wife and DIL's I will want something that looks real nice.

                        This is the third forum I've seen you post this question on (not a bad thing). It will be interesting to see the responses you get from such a diverse group. As i stated on one of them, I use Poplar alot for this project and i use a small piece of wood to back up my project and drill slowly to avoid the tear out you are experiencing. I also use sharp drill bits. Give these tips a try and let us know how it goes. Personally I don't care for red oak as it splinters a lot.

                          Posted on 3 forums hoping for more answers.
                          I was using a brand new brad point bit and was backing up. Probably pushing too hard on the drill press.

                            I would think a little less pressure will do the trick and a brad point bit is pretty aggressive. Switch to a very small wire bit like a #56-#71 depending upon size of blade you are using.
