    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.

                                Hi Rhys - I did finally get the center stand for the bike a couple of weeks back after it was stuck in customs for almost a month. Still have to put it on. The paddock stand will help me do this - Lol!

                                Of course you are correct in that the center stand does a similar job but the advantage...

                                Did you ever get the centre stand for the bike? A paddock stand does the same thing finally, I guess.

                                Very nice Jim. You have a very contemporary look now! Since I do cabinet, Entertainment centers, etc. for my work I see a lot of the same looks being done here in Naples. (i.e. large porcelain tiles, lighted dropped ceiling)

                                I do like your use of the space in the door way for additional...

                                Well judging from the photos, it looks like it could be a scroll or band saw. (The photos, although a bit blurred, show a few burrs at the cut.) It also appears the set screw may go into the other side of the cut as the hole on the blade would allow the pass through. Maybe, however it is just a pressure...
