I think this would look really cool with some engraving to let the light though.
Oh, yeah! But even as a trivet out of wood it would be beautiful!
You have to engrave almost all the way thru to get light thru colored acrylic, and that’s very inconsistent. I have made similar from smoked acrylic, which might give you the effect you are thinking of.
ooh, yea, like walnut hardwood. That’s next on my list!
Wow! I can see using this several different ways. Well done!
