I wanted to make a practical serving tray for some friends of mine. I made a Ottoman tray for them that was too big for daily use. I had made one of these WWMM designs but this one I added splines. The bottom is maple I sawed and bookmatched them back together. Apron/sides is cherry, and the splines are walnut. Finished in lacquer. Thanks for taking a look.

Great looking serving tray. Like the spline accent on the corners.

Very nice – like the splines. What are the dimensions?

BB1 the dimensions are 14” x 20”x 2 1/4” and if the links work, the plans are easy to follow.

Thanks everyone for the nice words.
