These trivets are made from oak on my scroll saw. One of them is a bit thicker which gives a more solid feel but also requires a bit more play to open nicely (Dremel work needed…). The scroll saw blade tends to “warp” more with thicker material with the result that the trivet only opens to one side which actually became a “hidden” feature.
They are treated with boiled linseed oil. Made two of them for Christmas presents.

Kudos for the design to kanevad.se.

Really a great idea. Would be fun to give as a “what is it” gift. Thanks for sharing.
