Thanks to degoose ( for the rather novel design of this serving tray. The clean lines and simplicity of having arched handles supporting the bottom and serving as feet appealed to me, and it turned out to be an easy build once I got the angles figured out and jigs constructed. Handles and sides are walnut; bottom is flame boxwood re-sawed to 5/16” and book matched. Finished with 3 coats of poly. Thanks for looking, and hope it provides an idea for showcasing a special piece of lumber in something useful.
