Easy Hand-Carved Trivet

November 24 @ 12:00 pm 5:00 pm


Great for holiday entertaining or a gift! Make a hardwood trivet (the thing you put under hot dishes) with a little hand-carved detail on top. Don’t worry — it’s easier than it looks! Your trivet may not be as detailed as those pictured, but we will use the same techniques, with a combination of power tools, traditional hand tools, and carving tools.

We’ll break everything down into a series of simple steps. First we’ll practice on scrap wood to give you a good feel for how the tools work and how to control them in the wood. Next, you’ll lay out and carve your trivet. Instructor James Owen will cover safety, layout, tool handling and tool control, and basic carving techniques.

Cost: $49 plus tax

Skill Level: Beginner
