I have a tile shop as nearest neighbour and when they change their display in the shop I pick up some tiles I use for trivets. Those shown here is quite big, and can take two to tree hot kettles.

Those are nice. Really clever use of free materials. Your miters look nice and tight.

Very nicely done. Definitely will keep the heat off of the counter tops.

Very nice. You have made a very useful project out of basically scrap material (and managed to get some shop time out of it). Sounds like a winning combination to me.

Well done. These look great. Glad to hear you have a ready supplier near buy.

Hopefully they will have some painted tiles for you too. That would make for some interesting trivets.

I saw these the other day while perusing your website. Just might have to copy this idea as I know some women (men too) that would absolutely love these! Might also give me something to do with that old warped piece of cherry too! Thanx!
