I made this serving tray using an old wine crate and some scrap lumber I had in my shop, but you can easily adapt this project to whatever wood you happen to have. This would be a great project to build using pallet wood, or you could use plywood.

Joe, Steve’s not to far from wine country, so he might have an advantage in finding those.

Nice to see another woodworker that appreciates recycling wood wine boxes. I have a few projects using them. Here is on of the trays I made. I used wine barrel staves for the sides. You have some nice tools.
