I made this tray for a local school auction. The sides are fashioned from barrel staves. I had to plane them down to the same thickness and then cut the corner joints, which is difficult with barrel staves because they are curved. The tray bottom is from a wood wine crate lid cut to fit within the stave frame. I cut a rabit joint around the inside bottom of the frame to receive the bottom. The handles are cut from a wine barrel hoop and bent to form the handle. I finished this one with several coats of outdoor polyurethane.
