This is a very simple serving tray for Communion wine. The wood is Tasmanian Oak finished with MinWax Wipe-On Poly. I made about twenty of these.

The holes are sized to accept small plastic disposable communion ‘cups’.

Nice tray, well done and very clean looking. Did you do the turnings?

Yes, this was the time consuming bit.

well isn’t this a handy little thing. It “looks” so simple, but it obviously was well thought out AND handcrafted!!
Very nice

Now for the real test. Stack ‘em on top of each other.

Yes, I agree, they certainly fail that test. Fortunately, I can’t blamed for, or credited with the design. And, Scott, they are not used in my church. I made them for the church regional headquarters where these are available for small churches just starting out that don’t have the money to purchase expensive serving trays.

Hi Don, Your projects are just as fabulous with design and usefulness as any projects posted. keep brain storming these great ideas. I really want to make that rocking horse, but plans drive me crazy. And if your church serves wine that way, I might have to find a plane ticket.

Very nice Don,
Your church is fortunate to have a person like you, that will devote himself to a project like this.

Wow that is nice. I have never seen anything like this at my church ever, but I realize this is for a church just starting off. What a wonderful way to do God’s work.
