I made these nesting trays for my wife’s business. She wanted a spot to show some of her retail stuff, which is made up mostly of essential oils, some local pottery, and her homemade soaps.

They are made from pine scraps with her logo engraved on each end. Stapled together and toasted to add a vintage look, these trays are finished with a couple coats of spray poly. The larger tray is roughly 10” wide x 14” long, and the smaller is roughly 8” wide x 11” long.

Thanks for looking, and Let’s Go Pens!

You captured the vintage look for sure and the logo is perfect. I think you made a lot of points. Nice work.

I agree with Dave about the vintage look! It’s a great old world look and more great lettering from you too …I’m so envious! Your lettering make it extra special!

Very good looking logo and little wood burning didn’t do any harm.

Thanks Ralph, Dave, Jim, Hoss and Ivan for the nice comments.

Tony maybe its time you made the plunge and invested in a Laser?

Tooch, I like the look and the logo is super. Nice useful design. For a second there I thought you had used some corner splines…then I looked closer. Just as an idea to share, this is a box I made to hold Essential Oils for a local concern that is sending them to dealers. It holds 25 bottles. Keep boxing and keep posting.
