The Oak & Awl Trivet expands to protect your counter from large hot pans and dishes, but is small enough to store in a draw or hung from the leather chord and display with pride. Made with Speckled Maple wood from our property in Quebec, it is a true staple of any Canadian kitchen. Maple is a very hard wood, and can withstand a lot. The wood may colour over time with excessive heat, but this will only aid the patina and look of the piece over years of use. Folded dimensions - 25 x 6 x 1.8cm Please Note: Small colour variations and blemishes are a common feature of handmade leather and wooded goods as each item is cut from a different part of the skin or the trunk.
