I had some more walnut and maple left over from my last set of trivets, so I adapted some more of Escher’s tessellated artwork.

Thanks for viewing.

They are 3/8” thick, and about 6” across.

I posted 3 other ones a while back (you can find them in my gallery). I entered them in the yin yang contest, but came in 22nd…and I was extremely pleased to do that well.

Very interesting and well done. You could do a lot worse than Escher for inspiration.

Hi Steve. Nice job on the trivets. How do you cut them? Do you lay one piece on top of the other and cut through both or do you cut them separately formthe same pattern?

Hi Jim,

I tape two 3/8” pieces of wood together, and stack cut them. I have my dewalt scrollsaw tuned perfectly, so the fit is tight. Glueup is a pain. I use CA glue.
For wood, I use walnut and maple.

I borrowed an Escher book from a friend. Don’t remember the name, but there are a few books, and they all have his patterns.
