My wife was planning a wine tasting party and ask for cutting boards and serving trays. Some are for the different wines she was serving, others are for cheeses and breads. I didn’t realize how long it actually takes for a project like this. I thought cut some boards glue them together and I’m done. I used Maple and Ash and coats of cutting board oil.

Very nice. What did you find to be the hardest part?

Getting my projects square is the most difficult part of all my projects. I need to slow down and pratice more.

these are perfect for cheese /bread trays!
How lovely they would look on a table – all matching but in different shapes. I really like this.
Now, how about a matching candlestick and/or vase to go in the centre of the table! :)

Nice job…imagine it was a bit tough to get the center square and then get the frame around it.

This looks like a great project for a thanksgiving dinner, with all the fixens layed out for self serve. Projects alway look easy until you have to do them. And when you have a time table its even harder. Nice job and great looking.

Great looking set of trays. I assume they were not passed out to the guests.

Nice looking trays. Passed out you say – sounds like a little too much of the grape juice -:))
