descriptions:

Wormy Wood Block Trivet

A trivet made of 5 wormy wooden blocks. When placed close together, it becomes a small trivet and when separated, it can be used as a large trivet for big pans. Since the blocks are connected through a leather band, they can be hung on a wall in order to enjoy its design and characteristics of the wood with worm bores.

 

Wormy Wood Cutlery Rest

The cutlery rests are made from a single wooden board. You can enjoy the look of its flowing design as the rests can be piled up easily because they have a hole where a stick made of steel passes through. The cutlery rest that is placed at the very top when piled up contains a small magnet that allows all the rests to retain together and prevents them from easily spreading apart.

 

Wormy Wood Checkerboard Trivet

A beautiful wormy wooden trivet with band saw marks that has a leather band around it. Normally, it can be used as a large trivet but when the leather band wrapped around the sides of the trivet is loosen, four wooden square parts can be detached. These four wooden parts can be used as coasters and the wooden cross at the core can also be detached and used as a trivet. When used as coasters, glass will not stick on them because the surface of the wood has band saw marks. When used as a trivet, the contact area to the pans is designed to be minimal.
