Maple, Oak and Mahogany. Partially finished with spray lacquer (full finish would interfere with the mechanism)
This is my version for a project published by Toughcut recently – ‘Expandable Trivets’ http://lumberjocks.com/projects/112297
I made several trivets based on his design, but i found it very similar to the famous 'Penrose Triangle’, which is an impossible object. So i made a few minor changes with the design, and this is the result.
A picture of a jig I made to assist with gluing is attached.
I added a video that shows the simple but brilliant mechanism at work.
-- Only by the 4th time I realized how it was suppose to be done in the first place.
