You can’t make just two, or three, or …. This being the third serving tray I have made and I’m start a fourth for my wife.
The curly maple is a piece of ¾ solid. The checkerboard pattern is achieved by routing 1/8” horizontal line 1/8” deep and pressing thin strips of walnut into the curly maple. The 3/8” round plugs are pressed into the maple about ¼” deep. The Celtic design outline is routed out of the maple. A solid walnut piece is routed in the Celtic design outline and glued into the curly maple wood. After drying the interior Celtic pieces are routed out of the walnut, and pieces are pressed into place. Tung oil finish and that’s about it!
