Trivet Centerpiece

With a just a few small pieces of wood, you can make an attractive and useful trivet.

A trivet is traditionally used to hold a hot container in the kitchen. It guards countertops and tables from the heat of a hot pan or dish taken out of the oven. But a trivet can do something more than serve a practical purpose, it can also make an attractive platform for a centerpiece at the dining room table. Making this trivet is pretty straightforward. It’s just a series of bars that fit into slots on three short feet. The bars are also joined by end blocks that are made just like the feet but trimmed after assembly to provide a more finished look.
