Hello everyone,

This is the first 30×40 cm serving tray I made from A to Z !

The sides are in beech, handles made with the router I received as birthday gift.
For the marquetery I used bubinga, beech, birdseye maple, lacewood veneers.
The entire tray is finished with 2 coats of oil/wax Blanchon.

... your comments are welcome

Muriel that is a wonderful design. I love the weaving effect and your choice of woods. How are the corners of the tray held together? Are they just glued, or did you pin them as well?

Thanks for your nice comments.
The corners are just glued.
From the added detailed picture you can see the router was used to have more surface to assemble the corners. I don’t know the appropriate name of this technique …
