Another trivet for Christmas. This was cut on the scroll saw out of Yellowheart. I saw a design something like this online but it was made from cast iron. So I went to work in photoshop and came up with this design. I think it is unique and kind of cool for a kitchen trivet. I found some clear rubber feet from a local box store to glue to the bottom. Thanks for looking.

That looks pretty cool – like a pile of silverware.

Very unique Steve. What kind of finish did you use and how big is it? Thanks for sharing.

Thanks guys. I just used a light coat of BLO so that it can be used to set hot items on it. It is 1/2 inch thick and about 7” in diameter.

Another great looking trivet Steve. I like the design. I was wondering, do you see a problem with the fork tips breaking off?

Thanks Larry. It’s possible they could break but since it is 1/2 inch thick, it seems pretty sturdy.

I too thought about the tines breaking, but if you get the same result, I do, it won’t get used as a trivet. The ones I have done seem to get hung on the wall.

This is a real nice design for a trivet. Nice work.

A creation of masterful design and workmanship. Great art.
