I have a friend who serves his wife breakfast in bed every sunday and she loves Christmas, so he asked me to design a serving tray for her. I designed this and had a friend who has a CNC cut it out for me and then I filled it with colored epoxy. I did something different in that I didn’t use heat to clear out the epoxy bubbles so that it would be a little pocked – I then sprayed it with a white lacquer and sanded it all off – I was left with the white on the tree so it looks like is flecked with snow.

I hand cut the handles angled them for easy carrying and finished the whole thing with lacquer

This was my first project with my new brand – I’m pretty happy with how it turned out.

Nice! Whole project is very eye catching. The handles are a nice feature. Could you share how you attached the handles?

BB1 – Thank you! I just cut the handles at an angle and predrilled angled holes where I wanted them to go and just screwed them in from the bottom. Nice and easy!
