This is a wooden serving tray made from the WWGOA plans. It turned out a little bigger than I anticipated but still think it came out nice. It’s 27” long overall and 12” wide.

I had a piece of rough flat sawn white oak that I had been holding on to for a while and decided to use it for this project. As I was digging it out I came across a few other pieces that I decided to throw into the mix. So this is white oak, sapele, goncalo alves, maple, and angelique. It was sealed with a coat of shellac and then sprayed with 4 coats of satin lacquer. I don’t anticipate using it directly in contact with food so I think it should be good. The last picture shows the bottom side of the handles.

Scott, beautiful tray. Could you tell me how you made the “lip” around the edge of the tray. I think I will make one as well since I too have a lot of pieces of wood laying around. Thanks for sharing

Thanks. Take a look at the article/plans in link in the project description above. It goes through all the steps and info. Like I said, it comes out bigger than I thought so be sure to read everything and lay it all out to get the size you want right.
