Barrel Stave Trivet – I have sold these for $20
This trivet is crafted from recycled Napa and Sonoma County wine barrels. The trivet measures 7 1/2×7 1/2 in. Large models are available upon request. The trivet comes either with wine corks inserted or empty so that you can glue in those special corks you have been saving or will open in the future. Use the trivet for hot dishes on the table or just for a show piece. The trivet frame has a minimum of three coats of polyurethane gloss finish. Satin finish or unfinished models are available.
What is fun is to save the corks from a trip or a friend’s visit. Glue them into an empty trivet frame. Save it as a momento or give it to your visitor as a gift and momento of their trip.
The last two pictures show the empty trivet frames I made for Rebecca here at lumberjocks. They are a little bigger than normal. The smaller frames have inside dimensions of 7.5×7.5 in. The larger frame is 9×12.5 in.
