  1. Our church had a men's Beast Feast tonight where they served rabbit, deer, duck, alligator, white perch, elk, and pig. I didn't go but from the looks of the cars my guess is there were 60-70 men in attendance. So I figured some Walnut trivets would be good door prizes and I made three plus a US flag. The trivets are finished with mineral oil and the flag is sprayed with Nitrocellulose lacquer. I used gloss but probably should have used semi-gloss. The flag is about 5" x 10" and the trivets range from about 6" to 7" x 10" to 12". Enjoy! David
  2. This set of trivets is a revision of a project I started years ago. I tried relief carving the words in a piece of red oak. Unfortunately I didn't have the right tools and it just wasn't coming out right. The result has been sitting in my scrap box waiting for more time, more tools, and more experience. About a week ago I found out my granddaughter was moving into an apartment with several other girls for their senior year at college. Her mom had asked me at Christmas if she could have a small trivet I had chip carved and I said yes but delayed it so I could also make something for her two brothers. When I heard she was moving into an apartment, I thought maybe I could salvage that old project and make it something unique and interesting that would be useful in the apartment. I took the old lettering, divided it into two trivets - one smaller for bowls and pots, one larger for casseroles and baking pans. Instead of carving the words, I decided to try scrolling the fancy letters. Just finished the scroll work over the weekend. Doing final coats of finish this week. Granddaughter will be home next week to receive her "apartment warming" present. I have used 3/4" poplar and Arm-R-Seal before for trivets. So I know they both withstand the heat. GF gel coat in nutmeg works very well with poplar, especially if there is a nice grain pattern. Top coat is spray shellac, followed by three or more coats of Arm-R-Seal. The Arm-R-Seal holds up extremely well against both heat and spills of all kinds.
  3. Jay Skelton sent me to Menards and said to get some of these. They are corian, quartz, acrylic (?) pieces that measure about 11.5 inches square. Polish festivals are coming up. Can be used as a trivet, display, or cutting board for serving things like cheese or dips or whatever.
