A friend of mine gave me one piece of curly maple and I had been moving it around my shop trying to find a use for it. So I decided to make 3 unique trivets out of it . I resawed the board to 3/16 and 1/2” thick pieces. Then I mounted each 1/2” piece on a faceplate and turned a 3/16 recess in it and inserted a 3/16” thick round piece of walnut. I glued on the other part of the maple on top and mounted each one on the small faceplate and turned the trivets until the walnut showed through. Then I plugged the mounting holes with maple plugs.
Doing this fills your head with more ideas of other designs!!!!!!

Fantastic idea! Have done glue ups but nothing I intentionally cut through.haha Great turnings. Everyone need a trivet or 2 around.

Keep it up.

jim you could use turners tape to hold the pieces on to a hardwood disc mounted on the headstock. would save plugging the holes
