So this is my first post, so if there is anything I screwed up, feel free to let me know. I built this serving tray from my own plans, very loosely modeled off of another serving tray my parents had. It was a Christmas present for my sister. To make the end pattens, I designed them in Autodesk Inventor, then printed them out. I used a really nice piece of tiger maple, and chose to just use a simple oil finish to bring out the grain of the wood. This was my first real project from my own plans, and it had its set of challenges. Being a 16 year old woodworker can be a pain, with school always getting in the way of my projects! If anyone is interested in more details, I can post them in the comments!
