Nothing fancy here , just utilized some scrap T&G Maple flooring and Cherry cut-offs to make several of these dual purpose trivets / cutting boards about 5 years ago.
No finish on this one as you can see , and the pictures were taken prior to edge treatment and finish sanding.
This was my prototype and I still use it today.
As you can see , I simply cut the tongue side of the board into the height (thickness) that I wanted the board to be and then edge glued some Cherry cut-offs between the Maple for a little color. This one is only 6” wide and 7” long , but the others were various sizes for different pots and pans and cutting board uses.

I posted this in case anyone else had some leftover T&G and scraps and needed a possible project for them : )

I like it when I find a use for the scraps. If I had a tooth pic maker there wouldn’t be any at all!
Nice little board Dusty! You can use it for many things!

Thanks folks : )
Hi Sharon , the “raised legs” is the side of the board that I put the hot pots and pans on…the flat side is for cutting on : )
