Beginning to wrap up a few Christmas presents. Not sure which family member will get this one but I hope they like it. The trivet is about 8” x 8” and made from Ambrosia Maple. The design is from a pattern I found on Saw4Fun that I slightly modified. I used a very light coat of BLO, (I hope it doesn’t scorch.) I couldn’t find the feet I wanted so I bought 4 rubber stoppers and cut it off at .25” and screwed them to the bottom. One down, many more to go. Christmas will be here before we know it.

This is really nicely done. That’s a wonderful Bible verse, too.

Nice work, it looks simple, but people don’t realise how many times you have to reset the blade. I’m sure the recipient will appreciate it.
