  • 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.
