Default Three crosses trivet

This is something I came up with Saturday morning to make for one of our girls coming in for Thanksgiving. I drew this in CorelDraw, did the toolpath work in Fusion 360, and cut it on the CNC. Yes, I'm having a blast coming up with original designs and making trivets, of all things! LOL!

The rock below the crosses was cut with two different small gouges. It took about 20 minutes to cut the front and about 10 minutes to cut the bottom inserts on the CNC and about 15 minutes to cut the rock faces by hand. It has one heavy coat of mineral oil and the two woods are Walnut and Maple. The finished size is about 6" x 10" and 3/4" thick.

Nice work and a great example of combining tools to do the job...

Really nice work David . That looks really sharp the way you designed it, and the crosses really pop with the lighter background of the other wood
