I found a trivet like this at my mother-in-laws house and thought “I can make this!” So I brought it home, looked at it, and looked at it … and looked at it somemore. After about two weeks of just looking at it my granddaughter and I figured out how to set up the router and proceded to make dust.
We used recycled maple (from the first furniture my wife and I purchased 44 years ago) burr oak and walnut.

very nice. I like those.
My Grandfather used to make some with the Radial Arm saw and a dado stack, also about 6 by. The grooves on his were kicked over about 45 deg. (I like those better, smoother, more finished look)

These are similar to ones I made 15 or 20 years ago from plans in Woodsmith Magazine, but the grooves were rounded with a core-box bit. Yours look squared. you might try the core-box bit instead – easier to clean tuna noodle casserole out of rounded grooves… They also had a modification of the design for round trivets. Those were the challenging ones. I made a lot of kindling getting that process down. (But only because I don’t follow plans very well. I take “short cuts” that either cost me time or even the project itself.)

Nice work…
