I'm busy passing the days until I leave to welcome my oldest home from Iraq.(I'm leaving for GA on Thursday) So I've been making some little items for their kitchen and such. Along with the cutting boards I popped out a bunch of these hot plates for them and others in the family. Once the set up is done they go real fast. Made from Grey Elm and Hackberry cut offs I have in the scrap bin. These are 5"X5".

As they are solid do you have any problems with distortion ??

Yet another project for me to copy - I really do need some trivets, and those are stylish.

Another great way to use up off-cuts.

Glad to hear that your son/daughter? is coming home safe and well, best wishes for the new year.

I used a dado but a router works just as well, only slower. You'll need to take several passes with the router to avoid chip out, burning and the wood catching and pulling away from your hand!
A 1/2" cove cutting bit leaves a nice round bottom for a striking look.
