A set of 3 trivets, made from Walnut, Cherry and Maple.
I don’t own a Lathe, so it was all made on the table saw, Laminate trimmer and a desktop drillpress – that and some simple jigs i made. Finished with Rustin danish oil.

I’m very pleased with the base, which i made from some remains of another project that didn’t go so well. its just a matter of time till ill make a full board from that. its not end grain but i guess the main issue here is the look.
I’m really not sure about the durability of this with hot pots, but i guess ill know soon :)

I find it quite intresting that just a few hours ago Tag84 published a beautiful project of a bowel based also on a 3d board design. i guess that the feel is that those appealing designs of cool boards are ready to go to next stage – it could be much more than just a simple flat board.


-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.

Very nice idea and has the ” cool ” factor. I looked at the stack photo and thought of spinning each layer to change the pattern. Excellent !

The project description fits very well.

I think it will hold with the heat; maybe not the finish.

Well done.
