Alaska Salmon Trivet -- Original Design by Ted
Back in Stock for 2022!
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.
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.
