A simple pair of trivets – made out of some scrap oak and walnut for my wife for Christmas. We’re always using old dingy pot holders to set hot things on the table, and I thought she might like these instead. She likes walnut, and the table is a solid oak barn table (shown in one of the pictures), which made the wood selection easy. Might make a few from cherry too to leave on the counters under the cherry cabinets.
Oak lattice is made with half-lap joints, cut all together with a dado blade. Once trimmed to size, they sit in a rabbet inside the walnut frame.
Sanded to 320-grit and finished with mineral oil. Thanks for looking!
