My son and I made a router jig for making trivets before the Holidays. This was one I made for my wife out of maple and walnut. I just started using the lacquer can spay which is wonderful finish for little projects like this. One question that I had when building is what glue to use since the interfaces are so small. I just used wood glue but wondered if CA would be better. Any advice from anyone?

I really like the suttlel curves, and in answer to your question, I don’t think ca glue would be better because as we know tests have been done and they prove that wood glue is stronger than the wood itself. Also if you add up all of those small contact surfaces you will see that there is quite a bit of contact area.
Thanks Chad

Make it in one piece to begin with. You need a pivot and a circle cutting jig that increases in regular increments. Cut one side at least 1/2 the thickness of the stock, then flip the board over and do the other side at different angle? The results are the same thing, only in one continuous piece. You can vary the design by using different cutter heads, creating square voids, ovals, and even diamonds.

I’m doing something similar for the trays of the humidor I’m building.

There’s an article in Fine Woodworking mag sometime last year that shows the technique.

I hadn’t planned a blog but here’s the link to the jig design that I loosely followed that’s very helpful: link
