  • Trivet design

    I make a few different trivets which are very popular here and the enclosed design I usually make on an oval shape. I have been trying to find a new shape for this pattern and the best I could find was the enclosed design. It is actually a lens hood from a camera and I made it oval shape but the big problem is that it was a pencil drawing and very thick.I just cut this one to try it out and cannot use it again as it is not accurate enough, Could someone come up with a pattern with a thin defined line roughly to the design of the enclosed. I would be so grateful, Many thanks.

    That's gorgeous. Looks like a nice wall hanging thing.
    Pacifism is great, as long as everyone is participating.

      I'm sorry i really don't think i understand what you would like done. Do you want the flower made into a line drawing? Or the shape of the outside plaque? Or maybe i am way off. What exactly would you like to see? Sorry for my denseness. I haven't had my coffee yet this morning lol

        Hi Russell. I hope you are keeping well and making plenty of sawdust. I am sorry, I am a bit vague as well sometimes. What I am after is just the outside shape, ideally as a line drawing so I can follow the line closely on the saw. The flower is just one of many designs I use for this sort of work. I have some really nice patterns I would like to use in the above shape. Thanks Russell.

        Thanks for the comments Stephen.

              First off how thick is the board you cut?
              When I want something to stand out I use backer-boards 1/8 thick to get the depth.
              that means you would have to cut the big cutting into pieces to put the spacer behind.
              for instance the cloud bottom right which his hand is on I would put maybe...

              I am stunned at the fact it wasn't rotted or termite destroyed. That must've been one blessed lady. Thank you for what you all are doing!

              Pretty boards. Our Walmart didn't have any when I went. Thank you for sharing though.

              Looking at the image, I would sand down the clouds a bit on the left (as you're looking at it)....to make it look like the clouds on the right are the closest to you. Then with the clouds to the left being less pronounced it will make it look more like he is sitting on them. Humorous design choice...

              I would have to agree that I've not personally made many designs from the magazine, as I have progressed to making most of my own designs. However, I do enjoy some of the reviews and other articles---as well as checking out techniques of others. I debated as well, but decided to renew. Now I just...
