Simple but effective, I would say. It’ll carry a decanter of my favorite liquid refreshment, I’m certain!

Nice looking serving tray! The handles look great, and simplified construction!

What was your finish? I really like how the natural color shows thru. My few walnut projects often come out too dark. I have to do a burial flag case soon, and I’d like the color to come to just like yours.

Sodbuster, I used General Finishes Arm-R-Seal (Gloss). I simply wiped it on using swatches from old cotton t shirts, and used a foam brush to even out the finish in corners and along seams. 4 coats were applied, with 24 hours of drying time in between each coat.
