When I made the dominoes trays in my last project I used some tongue & grove cutoffs. I trimmed the groove side off even with the base of the groove leaving two thin pieces. I laid them on the workbench and today I started looking at them wondering what I could do with them. The though struck me make a trivet so here it is. I often use T&G cutoffs from when I paneled my house. I now have a use for these slender pieces which I used to throw away.

I hate to throw wood away. Underneath my miter saw table is full of small cutoffs which I use out of very often.

Once my brother came by and ask if I had an extra piece of wood he could use. I showed him a bucket of sawdust and told him that was my extra wood. He just laughed.

Great job on the re-use of the cut offs
