Gaggle of trivets

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

While waiting on glue to dry Saturday on a couple of projects I decided to make some trivets.  The round spiral Maple trivet is the same one I posted a couple of weeks ago, along with the 'making of video', but the Walnut ones were just made.  The spiral Walnut one is being picked up tomorrow by a friend who requested it. 

 

The other two comprise an idea I have had and tried a few times Saturday to make them back to back as one trivet but it was just too dainty and once I had it in hand I decided it was just too busy (photo below next to the one I kept).  Besides, I kept breaking it somewhere so instead of wasting more Walnut I just made two trivets with their own theme.  Each are about 10" x 6" and 3/4" thick.  The breaks in the border are to allow air to flow and the crosses are at two different levels for the same reason.

Enjoy!

I agree.  Very nice!

 

You mention airflow, and it makes me wonder if there would actually be any under a hot pot?  Hot air rises so perhaps slots that ramp up in one direction would encourage air heated by the pot to flow out and pull cooler air in.   Air expands as it heats, so maybe the slots get wider as they climb up/out.  

 

As I have no personal need for trivets, you can pursue this idea for free.  :)

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
