Serving tray for my parents-in-law in England. Cherry sides and maple ply for the bottom. 2 coats of poly for the finish. Rabbet on the bottom to make it flush. Edge glued mitres for the joinery.

Thanks for looking

Beautiful tray. How did you make the sides w/ the handles? Template routing?

Wonderful piece. The angled sides and handles are a very attractive touch. Really like it.

WWilson, I used a jigsaw for the handles, started with a pilot hole. Frehanded them. No router yet, wife is getting me one for Christmas.
