A serving tray in walnut with elongated finger joints reinforced with copper nails.
I like the protruding finger joints common to the Greene and Greene style, but I wanted a better contrast than I would have gotten with the traditional ebony plugs. I opted to go with copper nails to get some bright and sparkly contrast along with a solid corner reinforcement.
I didn’t have any walnut veneer I liked so I made the bottom by gluing up two pieces of 3/16” walnut plywood. It makes for a sturdy tray.
I included a couple of the images only to show some of the interesting grain. The last image highlights a rather bird-like grain patten.
Have a great day, lumberjocks, and thanks for looking in.
