This time of year can be good for woodturners. Maybe you received some new hardwoods. Maybe you completed a few projects. In either case you probably created or you will create some scrap ends of boards. If you live with a wood burning stove, there is always the stove to feed scraps to. However, in the case of wood, what gives heat can tolerate heat. At least as far as a pot of soup is concerned.

Oak Four-Cornered Trivet

The cook is always looking for a hotpad to hold a hot pot of soup, one that will protect the surface of the counter or fine furniture. This turned trivet will provide four feet to carry the weight and an air gap to let heat dissipate. Just be careful of those corners when you are turning it.
