I was in the shop yesterday trying to figure out how to fit 1000 square feet of shop equipment into a 750 square foot shop.
I needed a brain break and decided to relax and play around on the lathe.
I have a bunch of bowl blanks I made for the Christmas show season but didn’t get turned, so I thought I’d try carrying the mushroom bowl concept a little further.
After an hour I’d turned this little trivet.

It’s 7 inches in diameter, about 1 inch tall, and varies from a little over 1/8 inch thick to paper thin (which was a mistake.)

Wood is Indian dontknow dunnage (almost all I use.)

Sanded to 320 grit, with a liberal coating of Teak oil left to set for 15 minutes, then buffed with an old t-shirt.
