My family, wife and daughter made Trivets for Christmas gifts in 2012, it was my wife’s idea.
We had to make 70 Trivets that year and were made out of Maple, cherry and Walnut. We soaked
them in Watco and then buffed and polished them out.
Picture 3 shows the keyhole and the rubber feet in the back.
Picture 4 was the buffing.
Picture 5 was the tubes that were made before cutting and assembly.
Picture 6 show the fixture I made to be able to get the exact dimension I needed.
—I cut one side of the board at 30 degrees.
—I took a piece of PTFE and cut it at 30 degrees also and mounted it to the fence.
—I then took the board, turned it around and ran it under the PTFE and was able to get the exact dimension every time.
I did not know another way to get the exact width every time.
If someone knows a better way I would love to find out.
