As previously posted, I have been playing with a router jig found in the book “Shaping Wood” by Lonnie Bird.
These large serving trays are some of the first output that I have created with the jig. They are all approx. 21” in diameter and created from 4/4 and 5/4 stock.
From left to right the woods used for these 5 trays are:
front row: spalted maple, and a combination of poplar, maple, and ash
back row: oak, cherry, and walnut.
Each piece is finished in its “natural” state, with the exception of the oak tray, which was first stained with 2 coats of General Finishes “Candlelight”. Wanting the items to be “super” durable I applied 8-10 coats of hand-wiped poly, 2 coats of hand waxing, and lots of buffing.
These are a fun and challenging “small” project to make, and make great family gifts.
Thanks for letting me share.
