Good looking board, with the handles and oak button additions being nice touches.

Did you just glue the buttons on to a flat bottom, or did you recess them into the tray? I did something similar on a tray I just completed, only I used dowels and recessed them into the tray for strength and longevity, then added little cork pads:

Did you intentionally face the sapwood up on that strip of walnut? Just curious, as I noticed that same strip only shows heartwood on the bottom of the tray.

This is another nice board, Oscar. Thanks for posting it.
