Tile trivets with wood molding edges
I bought some hand-painted tiles. I want to use them as trivets and also be able to hang them up on the wall when not in use as decoration. I donÂt want to re-invent the wheel, so I imagine someone here has made a lot of these and can advise me. I think I am making this way too complicated.
I plan on using some egg-and-dart oak molding that will tie in with other molding I have added in the kitchen. Under the tile itself I thought I would use some masonite or plywood. The tiles are a little thin, maybe 3/8 inch, so I think they need some backing. IÂm not sure how I should attach the molding to the base, whether it should be recessed or whatever. If the base is recessed, I would have to nail through the sides of the molding: therefore the base material would have to be thicker. Or could make a corner block. The egg-and-dart molding is rather thick and substantial.
And should the tile just be glued in? Since it will conduct heat I need to have a glue that will not weaken with heat, so the tile wonÂt fall out when hanging someday.
For hanging I was thinking about using a keyhole-type insert. Is there anything that would be better? Thanks in advance!
