For Christmas gifts this year I made trivets inspired by a picture I had seen a long time ago. We have lots of family gatherings and many folks bring their 13X9 glass baking dishes so I made these appropriately sized to accommodate. I made five sets total all with 5/8” poplar dowels; 2 sets with cherry handles, 2 walnut, and one padauk. I do not own a drill press and I have to admit getting the dowel holes perfectly aligned was a challenge. If I do any more I am going with the padauk handles and poplar dowels – if you can get some poplar with a greenish hue it creates a cool red and green effect perfect for Christmas. Sorry for the crappy cell phone pics.
