Well had a interesting time in the mountains. We had a bear that kept coming around, until the Game and fish finally came and took care of him after he broke into a couple of other cabins in the area. After that it was a relaxing time spent catching fish and enjoing the cool mountains
Anyway, back to the serving tray. I decided not to add any more keys for fear of messing up a good thing. The silver wire inlay proved to be a little more difficult than I anticipated but for the first time it turned out ok, but I definately need more practice.
For the handles i just milled up a couple small blocks of bubinga and attached them using dowls.
The finish is 3 coats of tung oil and 4 coats of wiped on poly.
Thanks for looking
