I made these six serving trays as gifts this year. They are made of a variety of wood species. There is cherry (some cut a year ago, some cut long ago), black walnut, ash, maple and birch.
The one in the second photo has an interesting piece of maple for the bottom. I bought this lumber from a man who mills trees on his property as a hobby. All of the other wood is from that same source except for the black walnut and the cherry in the last photo. That is from an old chunk of cherry that I got from my uncle who got it from who-knows-where. I gave that tray to my cousin who is that uncle’s daughter. I enjoy the idea of things going around like that.
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.
