    I'm amazed at some of the wooden stuff I find at stores. Granted I don't get out much, it's been atleast 6 months since I stepped foot in a Walmart. But I got a kick out of this wooden grill grate scraper. So if I understand this it's just a simple thin shaped price of red oak that to rub back and forth over a hot grill grate, so it burns grooves in the end and cleans your grill at the same time. And for $18.96 you just have to have one -:lol

    Seriously I could make these for about $1.50 each including materials and labor. Dang I could be rich!!!

    Wow! That is a steep price for something so simple to manufacture. If I were you I'd make some and put it on CL ;)

    I'm always amazed at the price they ask for those little bundles of firewood in the store. If I sold wood like that, I'd be rich as well!
