This is really quite effective for dissipating heat too – with those channels from the center outwards. I might make a few of these for gifts – fun, useful and memorable. Looks good.

I have made close to 100 of these to give away as gifts. They have been greatly received by their recipients.

Great looking Trivet. Like Bigfish, I to have made tons of these for gifts and to sell, of different designs…just made a couple dozen the other day. After all these years, people still like to have them. Keep up the great work
