One of my friends gave me a glass trivet for Christmas this year. It is really quite an interesting piece, but I didn’t know what to do with it. Use it as a trivet?? I don’t use trivets!
Then I hit upon an idea…
For Christmas Jay received a router table.
Which he promptly built a platform for it to sit on. This platform, though, has a top section where he can switch out his different power tools and they will fit right on top perfectly…
… he created the adaptor plate for his miter saw…
… and one for the table saw.
My idea was to place the trivet on a frame of sorts that would also house some LED’s so that it can light up.
Jay was happy to work on this because he was able to use almost every power tool in his workshop:
Pneumatic Brad Nailer
Then he soldered together some LED strips. If I did my math correctly there are 153 LED’s on this little platform.
The platform rests in the cavity of the frame, and the trivet will be placed on top.
Isn’t that neat?!
I have stained it and applied the first layer of poly, so I don’t have a picture of the finished piece. I think it will be stunning, though.
