Silverware Tray

This silverware tray (#2) was one of the wedding gifts for my daughter. The reason it’s ”#2” is because when I made the first one, I measured “my” silverware before making the projects. Just so happens that the knives in her new set of silverware (another gift from me) were too long to fit in tray #1. I had them here, just didn’t measure them. Anyway, she gets a nice tray and we have a new one too. Our knives fit perfect. It’s all cherry with a mineral oil finish.

Thanks everyone. It’s far from perfect but it does do it’s job. My table saw had gone slightly out of adjustment and I didn’t realize it until I did the dry-fit. I learn something with every project.

great job, that just made my “to do list”

Is there something between the knife cuts or is that the unfinished wood that is making the contrast in color?
Thanks
Jeff

Thanks again…..

Jeff – The section with the knife cuts is a very interesting piece of wood. It had grain going in every direction. Some places were darker than others and the mineral oil brought that out even more. It’s actually two pieces of cherry because one piece of 3/4” wasn’t deep enough to cover the blades.

Dusty – It’s funny you said that about the plastic. My mother-in-law (bless her heart) asked my wife “Doesn’t he know you can buy those made out of plastic”. I think my daughter was very pleased to have wood instead of plastic.
