Default 2 projects finished; 1 coaster and 1 trivet

Here are two projects I finished today. They are gifts for my friend and his wife.
The turtle is Sylvia's pattern that I modified to put my friends name inside. He loves turtles. It is a coaster, about 7 inches long and about 4 1/2 inches high, made from 1/2 inch poplar and cut with a Seyco platinum no.5.
The Thanksgiving pattern is from Jody Smith. It is a trivet about 6 inches around cut from 7/8 inch red oak with a Seyco platinum no. 7.
The coaster will get two coats of Deft satin spray. The trivet I plan to leave unfinished to age naturally (is that a bad idea? I've never made one before but thought the finish might not stand up to the heat).
All comments and criticism welcome.

Bubba

Sweeeeet cuts Bubba. The turkey trivet sure would be a nice seasonal gift to bring at dinner.

Those look great, the personal coaster is a neat touch.

Actually WD, that is exactly what I had intended to do. My friends wife is cooking the dinner so I thought this would be a nice way to show my appreciation. We are always exchanging gifts with them. It's like Christmas all year long.

They look good I like the turkey the best. I wonder if left unfinished if the heat would cause it to warp

Two nicely done projects Bubba. The lettering cuts show a very high degree of cutting skill.
