Default Trivets- Incra

There was a request in my last post for something made with the Incra, so I'll add a few photos of a second batch of trivets I've made. They were made with 4 successive bits (1/2", 3/8", 1/4" and 1/8"), but in increasing depths. My son and I were working on a fancier batch this weekend when my 1/8" carbide spiral broke off... so I need to order some more.

These were finished with a very dilute polyurethane (~2:1 MSoly)to provide wash-ability without adding shine. I gave several of these away at Christmas and only have these left. I'm planning on donating a pair for a door prize at my next local WW club meeting, to see if I can raise the interest in routing or find those with interest.

I've also built some dovetail drawers for a under drill press cabinet but will post those when I post the RT base.. since I want to use the same setup for routing the false drawer fronts. as far as the cabinet, I've laminated two 1/2" BB ply pieces for the base, sanded and put the first (sealing) coat of finish on the underside.

This will likely be a slow-go as I started a new job today and they're asking for 60 hr weeks, but I'll keep plugging at it!

..and yes, Harry... I've started a photo shoot of the cab base, which I'll start posting once it starts to look like a table. <g>

Those are beautiful Jim but how in the world can I learn to make them without a photo shoot? It's obvious that there are two of you so there isn't any reason (excuse) for not doing photo shoots.

Harry,

I've got a photo shoot underway for the fancier ones. Since those incorporate this "pyramid design", these will be obvious.

My hold-up at the moment is that I snapped my 1/8" router bit and need to order more.

I eagerly await the photo shoot Jim because I'm serious when I tell you that I want to make some without the hassle of re-inventing the wheel.

Good luck on your new job, hope it is something you want to do. I use a mico convection oven most of the time so trivets are not on my to do list. But love seeing yours.

John, irrespective of whether or not you actually use them, just think of the great presents they would make.

I love what I do, John.. its just that the company I was working for was out of work for me and had told me in mid-December that I'd be laid off after the project I was working on was over unless there was more work. The next work came in on my last day but it would have been 6 - 12 weeks before my part would have started. It was very nice of them since I was able to have last day on Friday and started in the new job yesterday with no missed work days.

They're a good company, one I'd go back to if this one runs out of work.

Do you cut across the grain to start and then cut along the grain to reduce chip out? Do you hog the waste out?
