I built this tray as a present for my sister. It was my first time with a decorative inlay like this. There will be more in the future. It has a maple frame with walnut tray and tiger maple leaf design and walnut corner keys.

Very nicely done. The maple leaf with the burn on the edges really sets the tray off. The joint detail is very precise. She should be impressed with your work.

Really good looking tray mzmac. Did you use a router to round over the edges. This a very sleek look tray. Looks like it would do about 90 mph.- JJ

I really like this. How is the bottom attached? Is it in a groove like a drawer bottom?
