Seen this in Canadian Woodworking a while back and put my own twist on it!

The actual trivets are the three maple squares (lighter coloured). The walnut (dark wood) is simply the holder for the trivets so they can be hung on the wall. The maple trivets slide over the walnut center of the holder.

Nice. Do the individual parts come off or is it more decrative?

Very nice! I think that maple and walnut were just made for each other!

I had no idea what a trivet was…I still don’t. Are those inlays? It’s really nice work.

Tom (mot) : A trivet is a pad or base that goes under a hot dish when placing it on the dining table so as not to damage the table. The walnut centers are not inlaid they are…...picture a donut hanging on a dowel.
