Trivet from 3/4” red oak, finished with mineral oil.

I modified a purchased candle tray pattern from Sheila Landry (“scrollgirl” here on LJ) by enlarging and adding a stencil pattern from Dover publications in the centre.

Took forever, but it was fun. Does a nice job of protecting the table from hot casserole dishes.

It would do a nice job just hanging on a wall to look at also. That is a beauty.

Wow, thanks Paul! Having seen your work, particularly the amazing scroll saw portraits, that is indeed an honor :-)

I like the design, and I agree with Paul. I have cut tons of Trivets and try to make everyone pretty enough to hang on the wall for display like my Grandparents did so many years ago. I have about 40+ designs I do now, and allot were designed the same way you did

Thanks Larry. I just took a look at your Hawaii-themed trivets and they are beautiful! I also wish I was in Hawaii right now since we’re at a chilly -20 in Calgary…
