This is a simple but singular gift I made for my Father. He loves Tequila so I made a particular Tequila Serving Tray (I named it)
It’s made out of 2×1 pine scraps I had at my shop. I cut them to about 40 cm (15 1/2 in) long and about 12 cm (10 1/2 in) wide. I joined them with simple wood glue, but did not planed the edges to keep the rustic look. Before giving it a dark walnut stain, I gave it some “wear out” with chisels, hammer, coarse sandpaper and scratched it all over to give an antique look. It came out simply perfect. For the final touch, I added some old looking brass handles from Home Depot and finally sealed it with mineral oil to give it a shiny look.
It was very cheap and easy to build. My father loved it and as you see can hold a round 1 liter bottle. To be honest you must be careful because it is too narrow and the bottle is a bit unstable, but with a smaller bottle or a rectangular one should not happen.
Later I thought of drilling some round holes to hold the cups, salt and lemon plate, but I will do next time I build one of these.
