Made this out of qswo. On the pins, instead of using a coping saw I used a chisel. This method was easier for defining the baseline – I like the results better. I didn’t work from plans, just measured a casserole dish. Finished it with amber shellac. Last picture is a cutting board made for some good friends. Finished it w a paper bag burnishing and some walnut oil.

Nice looking tray. Does the bottom rest in a groove? If you have small gaps, you can fill them with a mix of sanding dust and wood glue.

Yes. I cut a 1/4” groove to hold the bottom panel. Thanks for the tip.
