This bagel slicer is as easy to build as it is to use.Making it requires only a few simple tools, two dowels and a scrap of hardwood.When your stomach growls, drop the bagel in the cage, squeeze the dowel tops so the side dowels bend and pinch the bagel, then slice away.

It keeps your fingers out of harm's way (and the crumbs and knife blade off your counter).Dowel diameters vary slightly.To ensure you get a good fit, drill a sample hole with your 3/16-in.brad point bit and take that scrap with you to test-fit the 3/16-in.
