Hi everyone! This is my first post here in the LJ community. I’ve seen amazing works of art, learned a thing or two, and many projects have been a wonderful source of inspiration—Thank you all! I thought it only fitting to kick off my new membership with a project inspired by toaster tongs posted here a few months ago. I hope to find the LJ artist that first introduced me to that nifty little project and say a special thank you. It’s possible that mention of trivets was made in the comments of the project. I’ll know for sure if I can find the post again!
These are trivets made for my wonderful mother-in-law. I just gave them to her today for Mother’s Day and she said, “How did you know I needed new trivets?” I just shrugged and smiled. Truth be told, I didn’t know! She plans to hang them on the wall when they aren’t being used for hot pans/dishes which made me very happy. They are made from oak, cherry and walnut. I can’t recall the type of wood used for the center. I’ve included a pic (a leopard I carved from the stock) so if anyone can identify this wood species, please let me know. It’s domestic to US, softer than oak but harder than pine.
Thanks for looking!
