  • Trivets

    Made these for the new stove out of 3/4" red oak. Man was that wood hard to cut! Haven't quite finished them yet. Need to put some oil on them and affix felt pads, both suggestions from some very helpful members.

    The trivet base I made for the flower vase was out of 3/8" red oak... and I agree... boy is it hard! It was left over oak flooring from my 29 Model A truck project so I had to glue some together to get a piece big enough to use. Anyway... anything I make that will be used around food or small children, I usually wipe down with Martens Wood Preservative. It's kinda like Murphy's that was used on butcher block tops. Really enriches the color of some woods without being too bold. Drawback is it will need reapplied if the object is washed or gets too wet. Nice work too...

      they look great, I too work with 3/4 inch oak. What i do to get complete coverage is to get one of my wife's old pans and put the oil in it, and dunk the piece in there. Please if there is an easier way let me know, I hate finishing, but it makes the project look 100% better.
      By the way, I have to get the pans when my wife is away!

        Mike, you need to find a dollar store and stock up on aluminum trays. Buy them in all different sizes, they're disposable and it will make wifey alot happier.
        Dunking is the way to go. The oil or finish will get in all the frets.

          Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

          Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

          Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

          My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
          I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
          Was it a good idea.....?...

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
