It’s been a while since I posted anything here or on my own page. I have mostly been making WELCOME signs for a upcoming craft show and dealing with my surprise chickens. Yes I said surprise chickens. My wife told a local farmer she used to have chickens as a child. A few days later, while I was working that same farmer just dropped off 11 chickens outside one of my barns. I am not complaining I just was not prepared for 11 chickens. Anyway I made this tray from some of the ash boards I found stacked outside the same barn these chickens were left. I used walnut for the splines, and did sort of a continuous grain around the miters. The handles have been sitting on a shelf since I made the other tray in my porjects list. I finished it with boiled linseed oil.
Thanks for looking.
