Unique Gift Ideas
Baltic Laser Cut Trivets and Coasters
These trivets and coaster sets are the epitome of functional art. The trivets look great hanging on the wall and work great handling the heat of a hot pot right off the stove top. The reason they handle the heat so well or resist water damage is due to the density of the wood used which resists the heat transfer or water well. The coasters won't stick to a wet glass. Handmade by Baltic By Design in Maine. Red Dahlia, Blue Dahlia or Sunflower available in both trivets or coasters. Please specify your flower choice, and whether you'd like a trivet or set of 4 coaster in a stand.
