Do you have a friend with a nautical themed room? Somebody who loves H.P. Lovecraft? Need something to hold the vessel with your Incense of ZKAUBA as you make the Voorish Sign? This tentacled octopus trivet is perfect for you! Keep your counter top and table scorch free. It is also a lovely wall decoration. His water loving coaster brethren will gladly slurp up any condensation they come in contact with, thus sparing your poor table from water rings.

The octopus is one of the smartest creatures on earth and can change its skin color and texture to match its environment. Sadly, my trivets and coasters can't. But they can do their job.

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!
