A trivet made from multiple woods, the places are added in with crushed turquoise in the spaces. The wood is cherry, padauk and maple.
It was originally supposed to be a lazy susan, but it ended up a little bit too small so I changed it into a trivet. I had some problems because I used a heater to dry the glue at one point which made all the joints open up (opps :). So I filled in the joints with turquoise and epoxy. A hint here is to put the face side of your work face down with tape on it, when adding the turquoise, since all the small bits drift to the bottom and that side ends up looking better. Sadly I did this the wrong way around.
