Made this tray for a card playing friend of mine. I make lots of these trays in different sizes for wedding presents, etc. The small narrow ones make nice cracker treys to go along with the cheese boards we all make. Actually kind of easy to make. The angle of the sides are 38 degrees just like crown molding. I used the crown molding stops on my miter saw and used stops to get opposing sides exactly equal. Used spring miter clamps to glue up. Glued on the bottoms and used oscillating belt sander at 38 degrees to make it match the sides. The trey is walnut and the inlays are curly maple.

-- What to make next. Hmmm.

Got the card patterns from Rockler and just did normal inlay procedure with router. Used the inlay kid shown at http://newwoodworker.com/rotrinlays.html
