Hey Guys, Made this up over Memorial Day weekend. Just was kinda messing around in between Hot Dogs and Beer. It may be tough to see in the pics…. I had some figured Black Walnut I used for the mitered frame. I book-matched some Curly Maple I had and Wa-La.
The tray is 14” x 22” x 2 1/2” The Maple is 3/16” thick, set in a dado cut as a floating panel. The finish is Watco Danish Oil – Natural, with a rubbing of Paste Wax. The hardware was on sale at HD as Large drawer pulls. I plugged the mounting holes on the backside with Walnut plugs taking care to match the grain.
I would like to thanks my Planer, Jointer, Table saw and Jet Sander for aiding me in the creation of this tray.
Some of you may say “Aww.. why didn’t he cut handles out of the sides.” Because this was easier. I was drinking beer and relaxing ….remember. Also, I like the modern look and feel. I originally made this to sell at a craft fair I have coming up….. but my wife Brandy came in the shop and said “Oh you finally made something for me!” She is very forgiving about all of my shop time so… I said “With all the love in my heart honey.”
