Default Is there such a thing as a heat resistant finish?

I watched a short video posted by Steve Ramsey of Woodworking for Mere Mortals and he made a push/pull stick for the oven. Not sure what wood he used but he finished it with spray lacquer. If you can suffer through the ads, the video is here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dSu0...uBtk8UqSQYc9-w My question is, is there a finish that can withstand up to 500 degrees F for the short period of time that the wood would be in contact with the metal rack or would it be best to leave the wood unfinished? Also, any thoughts on what wood would be best for this project?

In case you do watch the video and download the plan, I redesigned it so that both the backward "C" of the puller and the forward "C" of the pusher are on the same end. Makes more sense to me since, if you pull out the rack too far, you'd want to push it back quickly and rotating the stick end for end might take too much time. How do I know this you might ask? Experience, I might answer.

Since I'm going to make a few of these for my adult kids I'll stack several blanks using double sided tape and cut them out on the band saw. I'll also drill a hole in the handle so that they can hang it if they want.

tile...

not that I know of...
Ipe will polish out very nicely and has a fire safety rating....

cured dull oil finish soaked into the wood (as opposed to on the surface) is the easiest to renew/ repair....
that leaves mineral oil....

This would have been the week that I'd have finished chewing thru the restraints...
If only new layers hadn't been added....

Stick....

I think no finish might be your best bet but maybe an oil finish. Most of the shiny finishes are a type of plastic.

Someone I consider a master woodworker once told me that a master woodworker is not someone who never makes mistakes. He is someone who is able to cover them up so that no one can tell.

Whatever they use on those wooden handled BBQ implements is pretty good at resisting heat, until they char that is.

Which museum is the shuttle on display at? I'd bring a chisel and when the curator isn't looking I'd pop some of those tiles off and glue em to your stick

I donít always insulate , but when I do .

I think no finish would be best, or a light oiling. Once it is dry it should be fine. Most of those oils have flash or fire points well above 450 degrees (f), close to the wood itself.

>>> of course, your results may vary! <<<
