I made this tray for an internet customer. 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. I justified a new router bit after my last tray and it worked much better. The handles are cut from a wine barrel hoop and bent to form the handle. I finished this one with a marine varnish that should hold up well to spills and drink rings. I sold it for $75 because the customer provided two wood wine crates and I got to keep the spare pieces. Based on my time spent, I should have charged more. The last photo is the tray haning in my shop to dry.
