I made 15 – 20 of these one Christmas, to give out to all of the families.

The top is 3/8” cherry, Under it going in the opposite direction is 3/8” walnut. It was all cut with a dado blade. The outer frame is Maple. The top is sitting in a babbit in the maple.

Karson, I was with you until you mentioned dado blades. I’ve seen trivets made with dado blades where you cut through one side slightly more than half way, then through the other side, again slightly more than half way. The result is a grid pattern from one piece of board. But in your explanation you state that you are using two boards, one Cherry the other Walnut. So where does the dado blade come in?

I cut through the cherry so that you see the walnut. And then I turned it over and cut through the Walnut down into the cherry. Just like a single board grid but I used two species of wood and they are glued at 90 deg angle.

Do you use a box joint jig or something to index it with, or is it just freehand on the lines?
