I thought it will be difficult to do this type of trivets. Looks good when I made the design similar to the box I made longtime ago. But you can see the different star that was split in colors and make the star in 3D effect.
The black wood is the essential part. I had very few ebony (kamagong) as it is already becoming very expensive. The one I use are all recycled lumbers. The original design was posted in the facebook last August 2015 and most of the viewer had like it. Though it was only the response of my friends. I made also some step by step in the facebook. I promise I will also do it in the blog here in LJ.
I called it a trivet but in a way, one option should be a background for a crucifix or Jesus face in the middle and there you have a hanging Jesus as part of the Lenten season. This was the idea of a Capt of the ship who is also a friend of mine.. and he was reserving one to buy it.
As for me, the only one is to realize that it can be done.
Hope you would like this … All of the process are done in manual cutting and gluing. I use a portable grinder (with sanding pad) and use only sanding sealer to finish it. Everything in color is from natural wood.
