I researched items from the RMS Titanic and found some artifacts showing serving trays,so I decide to make some.

I found some graphics which I thought would be suitable for the bases.

I saved some interesting graphics and when I was at LLWW I showed him what I was proposing to make.

Well Larry did some great work manilupilating the graphics and he fired up the laser.

Materials:
The base is a piece of Marine ply
The sides are a selection of spalted European Walnut and cherry laminated together at the edges to obtain the height.

The original handles/sides were rectangular however after some discussion and acting on advice I decided to round over the handles.

I did a progress blog on the development of the trays if you are interested in the preparation of individual parts.

Stand by for the other two, I havent seen or collected the bases yet but the frames will be exacly the same design as Tray No1.

Finish:

The tray was sanded to 800 Grit and sprayed with Cabots Cabothane Clear spray can.

Acknowledgements:

It would be remis of me not to publicly thank Larry / degoose for the time taken in mentroring and guidance in the production of the final product and the brilliant work he did with the engraving.

Thanks Larry

-- Regards Robert
