    Default A very portable horseshoe cooking trivet with screw in legs (PICS) Made for a friend.

    Hi guys, I just completed this very portable cooking trivet with removable screw in legs. Including heavy duty canvas bag. I made it for my good friend Markus. He wanted it without the black heat proof paint that I normally use. I'm really pleased with the result and it works great.





    Feedback welcome. I also make loads more relevant things that I write all about on my blog linked in my signature.

    What a great idea! I wish I could claim to have come up with that one.

    If you've more like that keep them coming.

    Nice work. I've been planing a three shoe version for some time, just my lack of ability to weld stopping me.
