I made this tray for my mother in law for Christmas one year. Its made from maple and some cherry scraps. I posted a few picture so you can see the steps. Its not hard at all to do with a template and a top bearing flush trim bit. Not necessary, but helpful to speed up the process, I used a drill press with a large forstner bit to hog out the majority of the wood from the centers.
I lacquered it for a finish. If I did it again, I’d probably use polyurethane, as this stands up better to water spills. That being said, this tray looks none the worse for the occasional use at parties that it gets!
Two small glass bowls (not pictured) can be filled with dip or salsa and placed in the round holes.
