Topic tags/keywords: trivets finishing question

I am making wooden trivets that I am spray painting. My question is, can a poly be put on to protect the finish from hot pans? If so should it be water based, can sprayed or something else?

Are you planning on painting them a solid color? if you why not use a high temp paint like the ones used for grills and engines. Once fully cured you will not have to worry about the heat or fumes. The paint is designed for heat applications. The high temp black I used on my tractor muffler can handle engine exhaust. Might be worth a try.

You might consider this, I made a set of trivets using ceramic tile and granite tile. Use either scrap trim or pieces you have milled to create a frame with a plywood bottom to support the tile. You can pick the tile based on color and finish the base as you wish. This way you do not have to worry about the hear. The ceramic tile will take that and more.
