I saw this technique for making trivets on Woodworking For Mere Mortals the other night and had some pieces that were right for these. Darker ones are pecan framed in red oak with walnut splines. Lighter one is Arkansas cherry framed in Oklahoma elm with Jatoba splines. Steve’s technique for making these is very simple and I like the effect.I made the frame thicker than the center and added the ‘feet’ and splines. Dimensions:9 3/4” square x 1 1/4” tall. Finished with lacquer. These are quick and fun to build. Thanks, Steve.
