After our annual Christmas party last year we found a leftover bottle of Crown (and we don’t drink it ourselves). Decided to make a serving tray and see how many of our guests wanted their bottle back. Now have orders for three more!!

Made from walnut and oak salvaged from pallets at work with a Watco Danish oil finish. Used a window sill router bit for the edges and a bowl bit for the bottle and glass holders and finger grips. Built a template which can be modified for any shape bottle or glass.

One of my favorites and a very classy presentation for it!

Thanks for the compliments. Coming from you guys it is much appreciated. You folks are too kind!!

It was a fun tray to make. As with a lot of my projects I just start building and see what the end result is. Stop occasionally and have Jamie help sort out my ideas for the next process. Is great to have a second opinion.
