I wanted to make some nice Christmas gifts, and decided some Trivets (hotplates) would be a nice idea and a good chance to use my router. The design and router jig are directly from Laney Shaughnessy’s You Tube Videos.
I managed to get some walnut (very uncommon in these parts) and was able to get six blanks from one board. Each trivet is 17×17x2.1cm (about 6 2/3” square by 7/8”) and finished with Danish oil.
The jig was easy to make from some scraps, and each trivet was easy to make. But, wow, dust collection has just become the next must-do project on my list!!!
