Another set of coasters…this time with a matching “coaster” for a pitcher.
Goncalo Alves with Bloodwood and Yellowheart. 4” x 4” and 7” x 7” for the large one.
These are a wedding gift to match a glass pitcher and drinking glass set that my mother-in-law got for a family friend. The pitcher and glasses have flowers painted on them with red, yellow and orange colors. I chose to accent the red and yellow. While these didn’t take much mill work…the goncalo was really easy to work with. I am looking forward to building with Goncalo again.
Included my gift card with a picture of an Astronium Graveolens tree…one of the 2 species typically used to yield Goncalo Alves.
Question: Is the large coaster a trivet…or just a large coaster? Are trivets for use only with hot items?
Thanks, have a great week everyone!
