Serving Tray

Serving tray made from european walnut leftovers from the cabinet I posted earlier. The tray’s panel is veneered with wenge and alder. Finish is walnut oil, although the backside has shellac on it, since I used it to test pore filling with shellac and pumice. Put together and veneered with hide glue. Handle has wedged through tenons as you can see. Which even though hard to make perfect, is now one of my favorite joints, as it also gives me more trust in the joint itself than only glueing would. Especially since the applied forces when carrying the tray go the same direction the tenon goes into the mortise.

Owned also by my best friend, who had me quickly finish it in a night he was over for a visit and wanted to take it along with him right away.
