Black Walnut Tentacles
Wood Trivets. This design was intended to solve the problem of having one or more trivets cluttering every countertop. The intent was to allow the trivet to be disassembled and stored compactly in a drawer rather than on the counter. To make these appealing as an accessory, I used a number of different woods as well as a number of different shapes. The most popular shape has consistently been the knife/spoon for use by the kings and queens of the kitchens. The wood Trivets come in many shapes, and are composed of two 8" long wood segments that are to be perpendicular when in use, held together with magnets, and parallel when taken apart to be put away in a drawer.
