these are a couple of wooden trivets Ive made for some friends , they are made of walnut and antique southern heart pine and cherry, the handles are inlayed into the top , there a simple project but i love the wood i used and i think they complement each other , i drilled a small hole on the top and used some suede leather so that they could be hung and i used some BLO for a finish, i think there a easy but attractive project and make a good gift , thanks for stopping by and taking a look. grizzman

Nice use of wood grains. I love the primative look.

Those look great Grizz!

They are about the toughest looking trivets I have ever seen – I think they would outlast any pot they come in contact with.

How easily does BLO scorch? Anyone know?

Very cute, Grizz. They might come in handy when the kids need a little rediraction?
