I like it. especially the bentwood handles. Gives it a lightness and for the size that works well.

Thanks for posting.

Love the handles, the tray is beautiful too. Steam bending…a technique I’d sure like to learn someday!

Much appreciate all your comments and kind words.

Kim – Here is an excellent video about the bending technique. The torch holder in the video is a fancy one; I use just a wooden jig, a box and a tube as shown in one of the photos.

Markslawes – Mine is about 1/2” x 12-1/2” x 18-1/2”. You can custom-size yours to suit your serving needs. You can also use different rivets (steel/chrome?) depending on the wood you use and the contrast desired.
