General Information

I built a set of simple scrap wood wooden trivets using two methods: first, using “traditional” woodworking tools like my router table, and then using my Inventables X-Carve.

Create Trivet Blank & Run Easel File On One Side

I ran the Easel file on one side first, then flipped the trivet over and rotated it 90 degrees.


Run Easel File On Second Side Then Run Outline Operation

Run the Easel file again on the second side, then run the outline file :


Roundover Edges, Sand & Finish

After the X-Carve is done, all that’s left to do is finishing. I rounded over my edges, did some sanding, and applied a few coats of polyurethane.
