These are two trivets I made for the order from my daughter. She needs one so she’ll have a choice.
The dark one is made from a piece of Pistachio wood (4 5/8” dia.) from the scrap pile at the sawmill in Casa Grande. I just glued a spigot to the back and turned it round and added a few grooves.

The lighter one is maple ( 5 3/4” dia.) with a 1/2” walnut core. The faces are 1/8” so I just cut grooves through the faces on both sides to expose the walnut.

They are both finished with Behandla salad bowl finish and can be easily washed after use.

Always nice to have trivets handy. These are both real nice Jim. My grandkids have made some trivets with the scroll saw and they get used a lot.

Nice, simple, and very useful. Will that finish hold up to a hot pot or pan? Thnx in advance.

Thanks, Guys!!

Hi Roger. I hope the finish holds up to hot stuff. i know the raw wood would be okay but I thought it needed a little something and I did not want to use lacquer. I put the rings on them to cut down on the contact area…........we’ll see!!.............Jim

Nice work and design. I sometimes wish that I would have never started on this site. I see so many things on here that I want to copy/make that I will need to live to be 100 years old to complete my project list. Thanks Jim!

Hi Sink-tinkler. When I had the maple part spinning in the lathe, I marked off the spacing with a pencil and then plunged straight in with a 1/4” round nose scraper that I made from a metal lathe tool bit . I did the back side the same way in the Longworth chuck.

On the dark one. I plunged in with a 1/8” round nosed bit…........Jim

What a nice design Jim, I’m now going to add a Longworth chuck to my list of things to make. I’m sure you know that it is an Australian invention ( I had to get that in!)

G’day,Harry. I did not know that about the Longworth chuck. But it figures. The Aussies invented the jet drive for boats too. I saw the original one in the museum down there!!............Cheers, Jim
