Very simple but required only simple tools and not much knowledge :)

A bit heavy but durable (some kind of orange colored stony hardwood).

This was a present for my godparents for Christmas 2008.

Quick question, what do you use for the bottom of the tray? I want to make one for my wife but I don’t have any ‘thinner’ stock lying around. So do you rip some to width and then glue or did you just happen to have a thin sheet?

Looks like a very functional serving tray! I have found that when a wood project is just too beautiful we tend not to use it but when we make something to be used, it becomes a treasure! Good job!

I love it! It’s good to see some simple functional projects here. I make stuff to use and get beat up so I can appreciate the usefulness of a serving tray. Nice work dude, nice work.
p.s. I love the vases and decorative pieces that are posted here, it’s just nice to see some real functional stuff once in a while. Thanks for posting.

Thanks, guys!

@Josh: I was given some thin pieces (about the same size, like the side elements) and I only had to joint, sand, and glue them (plus routing the handles).

Have your say...
