Default I made some Trivets

I made these four trivets using some walnut for the runners. The 3/8" dowel rods are: Birch, Cherry, Mahogany, Maple, and Red Oak.
They are 6" X 6" X 15/!6" tall. I finished them with mineral oil.
They looked to boxed in, so I beveled the runners, and the ends of the dowels.

I have been wanting to make some for some time, finally. I was going to give two of them away, my wife did not want me to. So I will keep these. Not hard to make. I think they turned out nice.

Just kidding, Ellery ...maybe.

Thank you. I have seen the great work that all of you have posted. This is really nice to be
acknowledged by such talent.
I am also working on a portable front vise that can be surface clamped. I will post it soon.
There are many designs out there of trivets. I wanted to make it all wood, something a
little different. I will make more.

Very nice work. For those with stone counters, these are not going to do any damage, AND keep the heat off.

Ellery they are very nice indeed, and the construction in wood, as it would be on metal principles, gives very impressive results. Did you make the rods yourself? If you did, and without a lathe, I would like to hear the technique. Then, how did you stabilize them on the grooves - if you used metal bits, or glue only. Given some modifications because I work with cypress only. I think they make exceptional presents without demanding too much construction. Congratulations !
