This is a somewhat unusual adaptation of a serving tray. It is basically a table top with a small border all around it (similar to a tray) intended to sit on the middle cushion of a sofa to serve as a stable surface for drinks or the remote controls. It is 18” X 18” and the border around all the sides is 1/2” wide and 1/2” tall. The handles are cherry and were purchased premade from Lee Valley.

This one was made using cherry and curly claro walnut and finished with tung oil and aerosol matte polyurethane.

Man, the figure in that walnut… I guess that’s why we use Claro for gunstocks…

Thanks for posting!
