I finally finished this trivet. I bought the piece of tile last year in Tucson with the intention of making it into something. It was just such a pretty pattern. It said it wanted to be a trivet…so be it!
It is a piece of 6” square tile with a maple border and a 1/2” walnut frame. The bottom center is walnut plywood. It is finished with 7 coats of Formby’s tung oil finish. The tile is glued in and grouted with black grout.
The tile is just a bit proud of the wood so it should take most of the heat from a hot pan.
