Introduction: Make a Cookie Scraper to Save the Day!
The other day, my s.o. made some cookies for me and due to a mal-functioning oven, mistaken program time, or simply over cooking, the cookies were scorched on the bottom. She wanted to toss the batch, but I said "no way...I can fix this!" This has probably never happened to you, but if it has, I have a solution! Using a jig saw blade, I made a scraper to 1: save the cookies, and 2:, more importantly, allow Cheryl to save face, if you know what I mean....

Step 1: Assemble Tools and Materials
For this little project, I envisioned using a hack saw or jig saw blade. As chanch had it, I had an extra jig saw blade available,so went with that. Basic tools, i.e., drill, band saw, pencils, sandpaper, wood carving tool (or any sharp knife), glue, paint, etc.
Step 2: Draw Pattern and Cut Wood Piece
Here, I drew a "handle" on a 3/4 inch thick piece of pine....outlined in pencil, it can be cut out on the band saw. After the shape is cut out, turn the piece on edge and slice it in half, vertically.
Step 3: Mark Wood With Blade
We want to embed the blade in the wood, so that when the two halves are placed together, they fit tightly and can be glued with wood glue. Cut out the wood within the outline to accept the blade.
Step 4: Drill Hole to Accept Small Bolt
I had a small bolt on hand from an electronic project....fit the hole in the jig saw blade perfectly!
Step 5: Glue and Screw All Pieces Together
I used regular white glue, nothing special. After glue has dried, sand the wood with a couple of grades of sandpaper, prime and put on a finish color (acrylic paint) and then a couple of coats of poly urethane varnish, water based.
Step 6: The Finished Product
This tool is very efficient in removing the burnt parts!
Step 7: Scrape and Eat Them Puppies!
Hmmmm, good and everybody's happy!
