This is first time I try to make something like this. After all cutting boards,my wife ask to make her serving tray,so this is gift for her :)
Making this tray I also bend wood for the first time ,and I realize it’s quite hard to do it if you don’t use steam technique. Also this was the maximum what I could bend it,which wasn’t enough so I had to improvise at the end so that I could assemble it. The result was wood filler around handles/legs :( (couldn’t find more closer color and didn’t have time to play with same wood dust )
Flat surface is oak,handles/legs is mahogany and stripes around flat surface is jatoba. Protect it with paraffin oil and after drying I spray small amount of noncolour vanish over the tray.
It is not perfect,but my wife likes it,that’s important.
Next one will be better…must be :D

Good Job.

I think it s very nice!

Great for the first attempt! Bending wood looks easy until you actually try to do it!

Ovov je poprilično odlično, bez obzira na probleme koji nastanu usput – ja na to gledam kao na dodatni izazov.Odlična ideja i vrlo dobar koncept spajanja ručki s glavnom pločom. Ja sam također kod jednog projekta savijao drvo ali na hladno (savijanje više tankih letvica u jednu), nisam eksperimentirao s parom ili kuhanjem, a nemam ni sredstava za to.

Thanks ralbuck!
I ja sam isto tako savijao,puno vremena i para ode ako savijas sa parom,a za prvi pokusaj nisam se hteo istrositi a opet hteo sam da vidim da li cu uopste uspeti saviti drvo na hladno.
