I made this roughly from a design of an antique my mother has had for years. Hers is pine with rabbeted corners, so I wanted to dress that up. The sides are cherry with a 12 degree angle, mitered at the corners. I added brass pins at the corners for strength. The bottom is leopardwood on the upper side and cherry on the bottom. I did this by resawing 1/8” veneers of each and bookmatching then laminating them into a 1/4” pannel. The finish is 6 coats of wiping varnish and 2 coats of wax.

Excellent! This is the kind of woodworking I really like – clean, simple with excellent workmanship.

Looks good. A tray like that is on my to do list.
Are you sure thats leopardwood? It sure doesn’t look like it.

It is leopardwood. The ray flecks are pretty small, but run in nice, neat lines.
