A Maple on Oak Trivit I just made for mom for Christmas. My yard is full of leaves, I saw one that kind of caught my eye, picked it up and used it as a pattern. I guess anything can work for something. the leaves are 4 3/4 in long 4 in wide and 3/8 in thick, and the bottom is 9 1/2 in in diameter and 3/4 in thick.

I like it! Especially finding a leaf on the ground and using it as pattern.

Nice idea!

Hey Matt…I think the correct spelling is “trivet”, but what do they call them in Californese???
