This project (one similar) was in a WWJ mag awhile ago. I made mine out of Red Oak (tray) and Cherry (grid).
The jig for the tray is simple and straight forward. I used pocket holes to connect. The cherry grid was cut using a no measure technique (there are alot of articles about that on the net).
The first cut is set with a 1/4” set up block between the fence and blade. After making the first cut. Shut off the saw, position the piece back over the blade; loosen and move the fence, add two 1/4” setup blocks to the end of the piece. Reposition the fence against the piece and setup blocks (final pic). Lock fence. remove piece from blade, start saw and cut… repeat as needed.
I made a cut on two edges on both sides meeting in the middle to eyeball a final center cut.
The finish is mineral oil and beeswax.

Thanks for looking.
