Hello

This sunday I decided to make a trivet for my wife

I have recovered a lot of bottle cap ( I precise I haven’t drink all the wine !!!!!) for this project

I made a miter spline jig for this trivet. This is my first experience with spline

I add a pic of the lath on 19/11/10

Thanks for looking

Cool idea, thanks for the post. I have a LARGE bag of beer caps just waiting to fill up a bar top and a large vase full of corks from wine bottles. This is a great idea with a small amount of corks.

-- some day I hope to have enough clamps to need a clamp cart!

Hey Jacks,

This is quite an original and nice trivet. As I can see, you didn’t make your tablesaw spline jig to hang it on the wall; you already made good use of it. I think each miter joint should be enhanced and reenforced with splines. They are good looking and provide a very strong and lasting joints. You’re a wise woodworker! Congtrats.

By the way, did you make the bead yourself in the frame or the trims are store bought? If so, how did you mill them? Thanks.

Best,

Serge

PS: Since I read an article in the newspapers few years ago, I now bring all wine bottle cork caps to my local wine making store. They are sent back to Portugal and grounded to make shoe soles and flooring boards. The new cork remove from trees, which decline, are kept for wine bottle caps.

Hello Serge

I use a lath of terrace to make my trivet ( exotic wood)

First I cut the exterior on both side ( I made a frame for my miror of my bathroom )
Second : with the center piece I’ve made the frame of the trivet
Third : nothing is lost !!!!!!!

I will post later the frame of the miror ( I’ve made also a towel holder and a soap holder )

Jack,

I think this router bit would be great to mill the beads on boards to become frames. Do you agree? Does your lath already has such beads?

Best,

Serge
