Default I did it my way #2

The wife of my friend that I recently made a frame for his 12" x 12" Kookaburra tile asked if I would make a trivet from a 6" x 6" Kookaburra tile. This photo shoot is not meant to insult the intelligence of members because of it's simplicity, but simply to show how I went about it. I know there will be members who consider the way I cut the spline slots to be dangerous, but it isn't, fingers are well out of the way, however, as a gesture to those members I will post a shot at the end showing an alternative method that I use when the mood takes me.

Nice work again Harryson. It is amazing how many power tools you use in making something as simple as that. That is where I am ,learning how to work with the tools and how to glue it up and clamp it.

Great job Harry - I also agree on the tool factor. Just a simple job - but lots of tools. I guess that is why woodworkers have so many tools - every one seems to be needed - even on small projects.

Nice result, Harry.

Here in New Mexico, we have only kookie burros.

Thanks for the kind remarks guys, I'm constantly amazed at the number of tools required for even a quite basic job like this.

One thing about being slightly older is that you have had time to collect up all these neat tools, right Harry?

Who do you think Noah borrowed the tools from? This is how Harry got the free boat ride from England to Oz.

Great job, Harry

How do you find the accuracy of the Triton 2000?

How right you are Maurice, it takes years to build up a well equipped workshop and although before any major purchases these days I have to ask myself if it's really necessary at age 75, I also occasionally wonder what will happen to it all when I'm gone, at this point in time my son and grandson don't have any real interest in woodworking.
I wonder what suggestions members will come up with regarding the last point!
