Serving tray #2. My Uncle liked my first tray (made for my wife) so much he commissioned me to build one for my Aunt (his wife). Thanks Uncle Rich ;)
Speaking of such. My lovely Wife Brandy agreed to model this piece.
This tray is 15” x 22” x 2 1/2” The Book-matched Cherry bottom is 3/16” thick, set in a dado cut as a floating panel. The finish is Watco Danish Oil – Natural, with a good rubbing of Wax. The hardware was on sale at HD as Large drawer pulls. I used my miter spline jig on the Tablesaw to add Walnut splines. The bottom spline larger or longer than the top spline.
This week I’ll be offering similar Cherry from my personal collection, for sale in my ebay store (Shameless plug)
I would like to thank my Planer, Jointer, Tablesaw and Jet Sander for aiding me in the creation of this tray and my boys Nick and Clark for helping out in the shop.
