Butter spreader and serving tray made of curly maple and walnut. There is on-board storage for the spreader that also allows the spreader to double as a handle for passing the butter. I designed this as a holiday gift “mass production” project, and there is a free plan on

Another great idea and craftsmanship and wood is exquisite. I build kitchen stuff and this is a great addition. I make a bread knife and holder that is similar. A Kitchen store likes my products and will like this one too.

Thanks for the nice comments. Here is the specific link to the article which I should have included earlier. If this link breaks at some point, just search for “butter” on the search engine and you should be able to find it easily.

Also, a friend who gave me that curly wood just reminded me that it is birch rather than maple. Some of the nicest material that I’ve ever had in my shop.
