  1. Inlay puzzle coasters

    This project has been sitting on a shelf, half finished, for some time. I finally got a breather from projects I had to do and decided to finish these up since during the last year I've been asked if we have any more coasters. These were actually made as an experiment in inlaying splines in wood...
  2. Penrose Trivet (Adjustable)

    My version of the penrose (adjustable) trivet made from hard maple. Very easy to make, 12 identical pieces at 5" long with 30 degree angles cut on each end. Beveled edges and a mineral oil finish, this is going as a "thank you" to a social media follower. Feel free to follow...
  3. Dovetailed and Straightailed Cutting Boards

    Centers are sycamore, aside from the striped board which is cherry and walnut.
  4. Oak Trivet

    Simple yet stylish oak trivet. http://www.pangadesign.com/Product-13967/Panga-Design-Collection-for-the-kitchen.--Beautiful-designer-kitchen-kit-from-Panga.--Buy-huge-chopping-boards,-accessories-and-serving-dishes./Accessories/Oak-Trivet
  5. FISH ON!! Trivet

    A quick, easy project I did with my 7 yo son. I ripped the wood, but my kid did pretty much everything else. It still needs another coat of mineral oil, but I thought I'd share it now. We're going to give it to his mother as a "thanks for a great summer" present. Oh- I got the idea from a PW...
  6. Another version

    This is another version of my bread cooling racks. I was hoping to be putting these out better by now, but they still are posing problems for me. Oh well, I'll get better with practice. Thought I'd share one more with you. Thanks for looking, hope you enjoy and try one yourself if you've a...
  7. Table Trivets

    Keeping to the theme of quick projects I'm doing lately (and trying to use up scraps), I decided on what becomes of every cutting board that ends up too small. A trivet! (or two) These are typical end grain, about 9"x7"x1". The woods are walnut, hickory, and white oak, the "runners" are white...
  8. Dyed Curly Maple & Cork Trivet

    This is one of the Christmas gifts I made this year. It is for my wife's father and stepmother. We took a family cruise as a family reunion/vacation back in March. While on the cruise, I saved all the corks as I wanted to make something from them, but wasn't sure what that "something" would be...
  9. Plywood Trivets

    This is the project I made the compound miter fixture for. I'll use the fixture for other things, but I wanted to see what kind of pattern it would yield if I glued 5 pieces of plywood up at 4 degrees and then cut it flat. I was not impressed with the pattern. It was not real distinctive and...
  10. Christmas Trivets

    Here are two trivets I made as Christmas gifts for my family, using Maple and Walnut for the frames. The stone in the middle is 4" square marble about 1/4" thick. I started with rough 4/4 lumber and hand milled and re-sawed to make the small strips for the frames. I used hand tools primarily in...
  11. Simple Coasters

    Simple coasters made from "scrap" cuts in the shop. Trivet-style main blocks with wood trim and 1/4" reveal/railing. Copper nail accents and spray shellac finish. Total time: 1 hour
  12. Christmas Trivets and Cutting Boards

    Thanks to Larry and all the other LumberJocks for the help and inspiration. Some cutting boards and trivets made from Walnut, Maple and Cherry. The first pix shows all of them, the two in the lower left are not completed at that point. The second pix is of those two completed. The dark board...
  13. Cutting Board with Handle

    This cutting board is made from Brown Oak, Padauk, Wenge and is approximately 10-1/2×18 x 3/4.
  14. Escher Yin Yang

    To me, MC Esher's tessellated drawings epitomize yin/yang in art. As a woodworker, I frequently use walnut and maple as the yin/yang of (American) hardwoods. I had fun scrolling these trivets. Thanks for viewing.
  15. Don't let my wife see this

    Finally finished the mission style trivet I made for my wife for Christmas. It should have been easy, but trying to work on it when she won't suddenly walk in slows things down. It's some scraps of 3/4" Oak. I stained it using Minwax Golden Oak, just a little bit so it will match our kitchen...
  16. Bubinga & Maple Trivet Set

    A bubinga and maple trivet set made as a gift for a social media supporter. The trivets are 6" square in contained in a mitered caddy. My Festool Kapex and 4mm Dominoes made quick work of this project. It was all finished off with a 220 grit sand and some mineral oil...
  17. Pair of Expanding trivets/Hot Plates

    [Legebla ankaŭ en Esperanto] This is a pair of matching expanding trivets I made for Christmas. I took the basic design from a commercially produced trivet I spotted in the grocery store. Theirs was bamboo and metal tubes. Mine is all wood. I used some of the scrap dresser wood I scored a...
  18. 3D Trivet for Christmas

    My family, wife and daughter made Trivets for Christmas gifts in 2012, it was my wife's idea. We had to make 70 Trivets that year and were made out of Maple, cherry and Walnut. We soaked them in Watco and then buffed and polished them out. Picture 3 shows the keyhole and the rubber feet in the...
  19. Trivet

    I made several of these trivets to give as gifts at Christmas. The technique was to use the bandsaw to cut almost through the piece of wood, advance it 1/4" and flip it to make the next cut. You end up with a piece of wood that will open like an accordion. I took this piece and moistened it...
  20. Quickies: Trivets and Chair Tray

    Had a big pile of exotic scraps-and a single wide board of cherry-that was kicking around. Also, I was trying to avoid working on a large project that's been dogging me for a while. Anyhow, here are some quickies. The trivets are finished with mineral oil and the chair tray is shellac.
