Nice, natural wood look. This trivet is carved from one piece of wood from what I can tell, but it has the appearance of several pieces of wood lying next to each other. The underside has 4 rubber feet that are glued on.
The wood seems somewhat heat resistant and the trivet looks nice sitting on a counter top compared to the standard plastic trivet I was using before. I only have one complaint about this item. It arrived with a sticker attached to it that was hard to remove and I actually scratched up the top of the trivet trying to remove it. It was shrink wrapped so I'm not sure why it was necessary to also glue down the product info sheet. A piece of paper would have been fine. Other than that, I'm very happy with this trivet.
