These 6 trivets are Christmas gifts that I can cross off my list. They are made from a sandwich of walnut outers and maple core and grooved from both sides. They are 6”diameter and about .400” thick.

I finished them with Danish oil and 3 stage buff and wax.

I added 4 process shots I took when I had my camera with me. This is what I made that thin piece planer sled for.

Cheers, Jim

Those are sweet. The problem is they are too nice to set a hot pan on.

Thanks you all for the nice comments!

Hi Derek. I don’t want them to be too nice to use. I just love making different adaptations of these things. We use one all the time and they stay nice so far with a hot pan on them.

Hi John, no, I never take a day off from working or designing..unless my wife get me away from the house!! The elves are hard at it!!

cheers, Jim

Jim
Like the look and the sandwich part and they sort of remind me of OREO’s with a swirl I would call them the OREO Christmas coasters .

Thanks Don, Klaus and Bob.
Okay Klaus…..........They are Oreo trivets!!!!!!!!!!!!!

G’day, Bob. My wife went to Az a month ahead of me so I can live in the shop now!! Those elves are running ragged!
I have some designs to figure out and then the wood cutting starts again. I had to finish a welding project first so I could clear away all the steel etc.

Cheers, Jim

Jim, Lovely Trivets. The design is quite hypnotizing, Its hard to stop looking at them….I must have a look on the net at how to make Trivets. They are a fascinating project. Great Work.

Those Elves are sure busy. I think you will have to sit down with the Elves and have a cold Beer after all your work. VICTORIA BITTER (VB) Would be a good choice. Although it would be getting cold in Michigan now so maybe Arizona might be warmer to enjoy a cold beer…....Safe Trip!!!!
Kind regards,

Cliff.

Very nice Jim. I only have one question, what RPM for the offset turning? TIA.

Those trivets are getting better and better Jim. They keep reminding me of an electric stove grill, only cleaner.
