My first post on LumberJocks; this small tray/table was a gift for my wife’s birthday.
It is made from locally sourced Japanese Cherry and Maple, and measures only 20in high as it was designed to be used as a tea table when kneeling or sitting on a “Zaisu” chair. Additionally, the table folds into a lap tray for breakfast in bed.
The top is 5/16” with a compound mitre rail set to 15deg for the handles and re-unforced with biscuits. The 1/2” thick legs lay flush with the 1/2” thick mounded skirt to make it comfortable on the lap.
Thank you for looking, I hope you all like it. I will post more soon.

Welcome to Lumber Jocks.

Thank you for showing us this beautiful table/tray, it is indeed a work of art, and that wood is art by itself.

Maybe you could have found a more brilliant piece for the top than that plain one? Kidding. That is amazing! Well done. Thanks for sharing, and welcome
