Alaska Salmon Trivet -- Original Design by Ted
Out of Stock -- But Back Soon!
The salmon has eyes on both sides and can swim upstream or downstream, depending on your preference. My design is patterned after a Chinook salmon (also known as a king salmon), the largest of the five species of salmon commonly found in Alaska.
In a meticulous and time-consuming process, over 120 grooves are individually cut in the ¼”- thick interlocking pieces of cherry that form the body of the fish. I use a bandsaw and drum sander to shape the head and tail sections, followed by hand finish work.
The eyes are made from maple and katalox.
Dimensions: 19″ long, 6-3/8″ wide, and 3/4″ tall.
The trivet is protected with multiple coats of a durable penetrating Danish oil finish.
Cherry is an outstanding wood with a fine grain. It will darken over time, becoming even more beautiful as it ages.
Use and Care Instructions: Crafted to last a lifetime, the trivet can be wiped clean with a damp cloth and dried with a soft towel. Do not put it in the dishwasher or immerse it in water.
