Serving tray made of quarter sawn white oak with black walnut inlays. The finish was a food safe mineral oil.

That is really, really nice. I agree with jaykaypur, the butterflys look good too.

It might be simple to you but it demonstrates a LOT of craftsmanship and is beautiful! I’ve gotta get the courage up to try these inlays.

What precision! Andy is right, it looks simple, but it is anything but simple! I really like the grain pattern on the QS oak. That is beautiful and you did a great job on it, wrench!
