This is my first original design. The tray is 12” x 18” and made of book matched black walnut. The handles are red oak and black walnut that are bent laminated. The joinery between the handles and tray was the hardest project I have attempted yet.

That is a very clean looking design that is also elegant.
What method did you use for the bending? (hot pipe, steam…)
