I want to share with you one of the most complex projects I’ve made in the past year. This October I’ve married my wife. For the wedding cake we planned to offer to our guests a long swiss roll (about 5 feet long). So we needed a tray that fitted to our propose. So I came with the idea to make a wooden tray with a nice piece of wood, and she accepted ;D.
The Bubinga is quite hard and strong spices, widely used decorative purposes, used to for music instruments, its resistant to wood parasites and fungi, and also suitable as a food-safe wood. So, after picking up in the lumber store a 5.5ft bubinga rough board, I first needed to true up all 6 faces before I start shaping and adding the details. I’ve the handicap of no having an electric jointer or planer; so I’ve spend a lot of time planing down one of the faces by hand this hard wood.
If you like the project I invite you to watch the following video where I show you step-by-step all the creation proces, from a rough timber to get the finished tray. Hope you like it.
Thanks for watching and for the comments.
