If you are in your shop and keep the garage door up. Your neighbors begin to notice you are making things. And then wonder... can he make me a (____)? My next-door, neighbor who is originally from Uruguay, asked me to make him a 'coal rake' for his home-built grill/bbq (last picture). His grill is a work in progress. So, this is what I came up with for him. Notice I stretched my little lathe to its very limit on length. Had to use the drill press for the hole/slot.

The handle is made out of hard maple and is sixteen inches in length. The tool as a whole is 36 inches in length.
