  • 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.

              I have used all sorts of methods for putting on patterns. The only time I put a pattern directly on the wood is on Intarsia as the shaping process removes it. I only use blue tape under the pattern on very small projects.

              I Use clear removable contact paper (shelf liner) on the wood and...

              I agree about how it was advertised, but it is my own fault, I know better. Just for curiosity I may strip the paint off and see how true the plate is.

              The good thing is that while I had my saw blade off I cleaned it sprayed Crud cutter on it let it sit then wiped it off with a skotchbright...
