Inlay serving tray made from Hickory. the tray is 13×22 X 1 1/2 inches tall. Inlay is done with templates from Tarter woodworking. The Sun is Yellowheart, the birds are Walnut & Wenge, the trunk of the tree is also Wenge. The tree leaves are Bloodwood highlighted with Cherry. The finish is satin Min-Wax wipe on poly (nice). This was a fun project that I am going to keep for myself to put TV remotes in so I can enjoy it. Questions & comments are always appreciated…...............................Jack

Simple, elegant, nice contrast. Almost too nice to use? LOL!

Very nice work. Kind of crazy but I literally just placed an order for the peace sign inlay kit from the same website. But anyhow, great job….jack
