Default Seasonal Trivets

The people at the "Made in Michigan" store where I have a display said I should make something seasonal - so I came up with these trivets. Corian samples about 11 x 11 with rubber feet attached to the back.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

Ah yes, the two part state. Grew up about 40 miles west of Detroit. Sure don't miss those winters. Down here a really fierce winter means snow is on the ground for about two weeks. Hehehehe. If you've never done it, go up north and cross the straits on that bridge. You're too late to ride the car ferries across, but I did, as a kid.

Theo,

I grew up about 100 miles from the bridge, and was just a young'n when the ferries were still running. I'd move back up that way, but Mama won't budge.

Oh...... is that what they meant?

But mine are good even after the holidays are over. Don't have to discount them or store them for a year.

Aw, he's just getting picky, I like your thought more.

Looks good, John. Don't you just love the smell of corian cutting...not. What did you use for the filling the vcarve? Did you seal with anything?
Happy Turkey Day.

Just masked them, cut, and used acrylic paint. Nothing else.
