Made a couple solid wood silverware trays to put in a local arts and crafts sale next week. The two tone one was snagged up before the finish could dry.

Nice job. Maybe there is a lesson in the 2 tone snap up?? ;-))

TopamaxSurvivor,

I have noticed that the two tone/multiple wood look is more appealing to my customers (especially contrasting colors). Though I do have a couple customers that are partial to the single look, so I try to make sure that my designs look good both ways.

BentheViking, Jerrells,

I have a couple other configurations in design working out some issued. I hope to have some samples in a couple of weeks.

Great job!

I’d love to hear from you how you actually made these. Looks like router work but I can only guess that you made a template first.

ChesapeakeBob,

Yes, this is done using a template and router with a bowl bit.

After glue up I plane both sides flat and smooth. Then I mark it up using the template. After that I take it to the drill press and clear out most of the wood with a Forstner bit. Then put the template back on and clear the rest out with the router. I trace out a 1/2” wall and cut it out on the band saw then round over the edges. Then sand it smooth all over down to 400 grit and finish.

I was as it was all reclaimed wood. I also got an additional job request from the person that bought it. She wants a free standing butcher block island for her kitchen.
