In the production of the Titanic Serving Trays there was originally going to be four of them.
However in the process of making the frames I had two pieces of timber discarded due to not being able to match them up.
Whilst cleaning up I decided to slice them up for some veneer work later.
Well I saw a very spooky image in the wood and decided to make a “special Tray”
Originally it was going to be engraved as well but when Larry saw it he suggested it not be done as it would ruin the image, so be it
Cherry and obviously Walnut veneer, same as the TSTs, however upon triming the base I found that I would lose
quite a bit of the effect if I made it exactly as the other three.
End mortices were not added and the length extended to the full length of the inlay work.
Base material is MDF with Jarrah veeneer backing.
Sanded to 800 grit and finished with Orange Oil, a new PU from David’s, Howard Products stand at the Brisbane wood expo 2014.
Closure: The development of this tray is covered by a blog I did called Titanic Trays if of further interest.
Whats with the Spooky title? well if you have a close look there is what appears to be an Spooky image of a face deep below the Atlantic.
