I saw this project in the December, 2009 / January, 2010 Issue of Wood Magazine and thought that it would make nice Christmas gifts for my wife, two daughters and my daughter-in-law. Besides, I had never before attempted to make anything without square or angled corners other than on a lathe. I thought….this would give me that opportunity to learn some new skills.
I decided to make four of them. One for my wife (no picture of her but the tray only photo is her tray), one for my oldest daughter, Dawn (Gray sweater), my youngest daughter Carmen (sitting by the Poinsettia) and my daughter-in-law Debbie (in the bright red sweater).
I used hard maple for the 1 1/2” thick middle sections of the trays and walnut on the tops and bottoms.
I have the complete build story and photos on the Projects pages of my website at: http://www.oldaveswoodshop.com/Snack%20Tray%20Project.php if you would like to read about the process that I went through making these trays, (if interested) or you can see how it was done if you own a copy of the mentioned issue of Wood magazine. At any rate, I thought you might like to see three of the four happy campers after receiving the snack trays.
