I needed a small, quick project for Christmas presents. I saw the, I Can Do It, section of Popular Wood working – the fish stick trivet. I had to make some modifications to it – the wife thought the head was to small. I started making just a couple for family It is amazing how many of those things can be cut out of a small cut off. Counted up the trivets – 45 so far. They just kind of multiplied in the night or something. 10 have already been given away without finish – they looked a little bland. Home, in Michigan, visiting family at the moment. Talked with Dad about finish. He suggested clear Danish oil. It looks great on his floor so I am going to test it on one in Mom’s finishing room later today. Wow – her finishing room is twice as big as my shop. Of course Dad’s shop is about 10 times the space I have. I only brought 15 trivets with me. Hope I have enough for everyone. Photos soon.
