Howdy all

These are my trivets that I sell on ETSY

The last pic is the original design that I started doing years ago for craft shows, just recently I decided to forgo the last dado cut down the center to give it a bit more strength and a different look. If you look close you can see I need a new set of dado blades guess I’ll get those next payday LOL.

Anyway these ones are cherry with 1/2” dado cuts perpendicular to each other on opposite sides of the wood, I’m sure you can tell they are made from one chunk of wood. I round the top edges over and do a quick sand then soak them in grape seed oil.

Let me know what ya think, and thanks for looking.

As you may have noticed; Pirate questions!

Great jobs get them!—

Yes we will all be “borrowing” your excellent design!

Impressive and I do like the thicker center better too.

Nice, Dug! Leaving the center thick saves a step, leaves it stronger and really shows off the grain. Sounds like win win to me! Thanks for sharing

Thanks all

MBD Matt around 3/4” is the thickness whatever the last pass thru the planner that looks good at the time hee hee

Jack I’m selling them for $15.50 a pair prolly not enuff but as I get more traffic I’ll raise the price, plus if you make 20-30 at a time it really works out ok.

Ralbuck go for it thats the kewl thing about this site so many great ideas to turn and tweak to your own.

Candy yup I like this new design for all those reasons but I think getting to see more of the grain is the best for me, I’ll make some more in some other species and see what they look like

Again thanks all for the kind comments you all rock
