Aurora made a request for a tray big enough for two plates KFS two coffees and S&P Shakers.
This meant a tray with the internals of 600mm x 320mm.
I had quite a few sticks of European Walnut so after a quick measure up I found I could mill them up, bookmatch each and then biscuit joint them all together to make the base.
I wanted to do some curved laminating so the oportunity existed here, I made a caul and then a couple of sticks went into the band saw for slicing and re gluing as curved ends,
The sides were some matched lengths just cut to size
The handles are produced from a 20 mm forstner bit then the the waste routed out.
There are a heap of screws holding everything together along with Titebond II so there is no chance of it falling apart
Sanded to 1600 Grit and finished with a Howards product Golden Oak Citrus Shield.
Took me 2 days to complete, I then put it in a bag and presented it to the wife, she was pleased!
I am expecting Bacon and Eggs in the Garden Sat Morning !!
