2 night ago, I was able to re-cut some of the letters in an effort to not have any broken pieces. The S and W continued to split on me, but I was able to get a nice M, A, and B so I will count it as a success. Last night was fairly productive. I was able to use my router with a 1/4” bit to cut a dado in the 4 sides of the frame to accept the plywood bottom. The 2 shorter sides had to be stopped dadoes so that they would be hidden when the frame is assembled. Once I cut the dad...
My mom approached me about doing something for my father for Father’s day. Only requirements were that it was to be something for their boat, and that it have the boat’s name on it. Other than that, I had complete creative freedom. I came up with the serving tray idea since they frequently prepare food down in the galley and have to bring it to the back deck for eating, and they currently just use some plastic serving tray. For the design, I decided that a prominent Compass ...
Since taking an introduction to Japanese woodworking, I’ve been itching to find the time outside of class to practice the joinery and techniques he’s been teaching (which have been game-changing for me). Since a lot of what I make is dictated by what wood I have lying around, I decided to take some cupped/warped poplar and walnut to make a small and simple serving tray. Today I only got around to a basic design in my head, and hand milling the woods flat and roughly to size...
I have gotten a few questions (actually 3) from folk about to how create the Incra Double Dovetails Joints such as the one in this project: I will not be making a box in this blog. But a really good friend saw this box and asked if I could make a 14” x 19” serving tray in the same style. Maureen has been a huge help to my wife and I so I was happy to get a chance to make something for her. Obviously, first place to start is to get an Incra Jig System. I have the old 1...

Grandmothers serving tray – MumseMy grandmother had a old serving tray for 30 years, that she loved – but it was completely worn out, the wood had fallen apart, and the paint had beed worn of during the years. In other words it was the end. When my mother asked her what she wished for christmas, her big wish was a new serving tray, but it had to be like the old one she said… So she asked my mother if she could ask me to restore it instead of buing a new. And so this becam...
