Celebrate the rich Mexican heritage with this Calaveras trivet and optional coaster set. Calavera means skull in Spanish and is a widely used symbol associated with Day of the Dead and ancestor remembrance. What better way to serve Aubuela's famous tamales than on this functional sugar skull hot plate?
My 8" birch plywood trivets are 1/2" thick and sturdy. They are treated with Danish oil to harden and seal the wood. Use them to protect your precious table or counter, or hang them on the wall as a decorative piece. The coasters are made from the same 5-ply birch but are only one layer. They measure 4.25" in diameter by 1/4" thick and are also treated with Danish oil for protection.
They're beautiful, practical, and functional!
They make a great wedding or baby shower gift, housewarming, birthday or graduation gift.
Each trivet is designed on a computer, cut out with a powerful laser TWICE and painstakingly glued together to give you the most sturdy and pleasingly weighted final product. I use 1/4" 5-ply birch plywood because the grain of the wood is layered perpendicularly so it is very strong. It's also a lovely neutral color that can go with any decor. The coasters follow the same process, only they are a single layer of 1/4" birch plywood.
Custom designs are also a possibility so don't hesitate to ask!
