These were some serving trays that I made, some I sold while others I gave as gifts this past Christmas. I had a bunch of left over veneer material from various projects and decided to make some trays. I used zebrawood, qtr sawn walnut, qtr sawn ash, and mahogany.

I have some of those kind of handles, been looking for a way to use them. Good idea and nice job.
