So there I was playing with some designs I had put together, because some were coming out interesting once cut. This one in particular. I was playing around with stars and had noticed that the stars created a diamond in between them when joined in this manner.
In walked the wife, and she asked if that trivet was for her.
I said, “Yeah babe. Sure thing… What’s a trivet?”.
She mentioned it was like the flexible bamboo thing she uses.
“Ahh”, I nodded smugly. 'The pot holder…”
“No, not a pot holder”, she corrected me. “A pot holder is”…
and I got the fast track lesson on kitchen terminology and the various safety gear available.
( I had the last word. I stored it in the Useful Things//Pot Holder directory - don’t tell mom).
So anyway, here is the Trivet. If the wife liked it and has a use for it, I imagine someone else will also.
I will elect to count this as successful, since I was just going to toss it when done, and that would have been a sad day for Trivets.
I have to disclaimer on this also.
I made a few from some large chunks of 0.18, and 0.21 ply, plus some draft-board sections I had in the Left Over box, but I have no idea how they will handle heat or abuse.
I may need to bond two of them together for a thicker Version 2.0
Lacquered them up to give them some legs, but like I said, the jury is out on how well these will function.
On the plus side, lot of scraps in the Left Over box and a new one can be burned faster than it takes to weed it, so…
EDIT: Decided to glue the two draft board together and added feet. Lot stronger and is slightly off the table.
Feet greyscale so just proofgrade 3D engrave and then cut the circles out when they are done. They lock right on for easy gluing.
