Sweet—nice choice of woods. And the satin or semigloss finish really makes them popl I imagine most people have seen quartersawn oak, but do not really understand what it is. Since the trays have exposed endgrain, you can educate those who ask!

Nice! I really like the choice of woods and the use of the dovetails. ( of course, I’ve not successfully made any myself YET)

They look great! I like the one in the 3rd pic, the contrast really works.
