Last years hand made Christmas present for EVERYONE! I made lots of these. I even made a bread basket similar to the trivets but I never got a picture taken.

Nice trivets, but to really ‘appreciate’ them, I would like to see more pictures from different angles!! Good wood choices. I bet they were well received as presents.

Great design and wonderful gift! I sure learn a lot from Lumberjoccks, and since ‘trivet’ was unbeknownst to me and I had to look it up, here for the benefit of others is the ‘trivet revelation’:
A trivet ( /ˈtrɪvɪt/) is an object placed between a serving dish or bowl, and a dining table, usually to protect the table from heat damage.

You can use wood as a trivet? Any chance you’ll burn the wood?

Been using them over a year and got the idea from a woodworking magazine. Unless you are putting practically on fire one them no problem. Besides, trivets are meant to be used so you don’t burn your table or counter top so essentially they are somewhat sacrificial. Pay attention to your finish. These are finished in Danish oil and that is all. Don’t use wax.
