"Lazy Larry" style vegetable tray

This tray is made from maple and paduck. I will never use that combination again. When sanding, the paduck will blead into the maple and it is almost impossible to remove it. This tray required a lot of jigs to make the pieces as well as to dish out the sections. Next time I will use walnut and maple.

Looks great. I’d say it was worth it.

WoW! Amazing combo of inspiration. A blog from your angle would be nice. I like how the cut outs go with the spirals. Great Job!

In spite of your sanding problems you certainly got an outstanding result. It has been fun watching the Lazy Larry design evolve. This is the best variant I’ve seen so far.

Incredible beauty and finish…I know what you mean about the Padauk dust being such a nuisance !

Great looking project. Larry should be proud—not speechless. I can’t believe anyone would use that idea though. LOL

Go ahead Larry—say something

I love the movement of the piece. The routed out sections complement the glue up perfectly.
