well i dont know what to call these, i made them to be trivets, but they can also be mini cheese boards or you could cut bread. i made these for the women in my church, there is 28 of them and there made from walnut, oak, red cedar, antique southern yellow heart pine and some pecan, i set my router table up with a round over bit and then cleaned them up with all of the sanding, i sanded them up to 220 and put a good coat of mineral oil on them, i will wrap these up and hand them out on christmas day, this is the biggest glue up ive ever done…most of them have 7 pieces to them which adds up to about 196 pieces, i glued these on both sides to make sure there was a good glue joint, so it a ho ho ho , merry christmas to all of the wonderful gals who have done a lot to serve others all year round…thanks for looking friends…grizzman

WOW! I bet you feel like an Elf. I gave 20 gifts for friends at work today, but I made them last year and they were painted canvas, not wood. I’m thinking about doing that again this year. Start now and get them done. Just not sure what this time. They will love these! Great idea and very thoughtful to do this for so many people.

I hope you don’t have a lot of visitors visiting you on Christmas Morning.

Better post the address of your church so some of the LJ’ers could show up for the giveaway.

Great looking and very functional Griz.

Grizz, there is a rumor going around that you actually made these as full cutting boards, applied your mineral oil and then tried placing them in the dryer with obvious results. Fact or fiction? In all seriousness great job buddy and a kind gesture. Merry Christmas to you and yours.

Nice work Grizz. If you’re like me, you probably have more glue and sandpaper in them than wood.

Hey Grizz, that is a serious production run.
Good for you, they look really nice.
And what a thoughtful project.

Merry Christmas,
