These are my first attempt at serving trays. I came across this blog and thought I would give it a try. Most of the wood came from my ever increasing bin of scraps. Originally, they were supposed to be cutting boards, then I decided I wanted them to be trivets. I changed my mind one last time and went for serving trays. I guess really, they’re more of a decorative food display sort of thing or something or another. At any rate, they’re Christmas presents and hopefully they will be well received.
These are made from Wenge, Oak, African Mahogany, Black Walnut, Cherry, Maple, Padauk, Jatoba and Cedar. These are sanded to 600, burnished with 0000 steel wool and then buffed with cheesecloth. The finish is Daly’s Kitchen Wood Treatment wax. I apologize for the quality of the photos. Thanks for taking the time to look and any comments/critiques welcome.
