Made of locally harvested Walnut and some Maple. The small narrow thin strips between the pieces is Philippine Mahogany. All surfaces sanded to 220 and main edges rolled over with 1/8” round over bit. The bottom base is 3/8” thick, frame material is 7/8”. The frame has a dado to hold the base which I did not glue in, giving the base of the tray the ability to expand and contract without cracking. No mechanical fasteners, just glue. The overall dimensions are 12 1/2” w x 18 1/2” l. Finished with 3 coats of wipe-on poly.

Thanks for looking

Makes me little dizzy when look at it, but very well made. I like smooth lines and curves and handles.

That surface would make me think twice about setting anything on it, the vertigo would take over 8^)

I Like the addition of the thin wood strips in between!

Sure is cool. Sure looks like it has an upward bulge to me.
Well done.
