I’ve seen a few of these trays posted now. This one was finished month ago and I’ve been itching to post it, but I had to wait till after Christmas as it was a gift for my parents! The design is from Woodsmith Magazine issue 196. This was a fun build to do and went quite well overall. The handles are East Indian Rosewood and the tray is what I suspect is a type of maple? This is made from the board that I started a post about well over a year ago.
Needless to say, my parents were thoroughly impressed with the tray, and happy to see something so beautiful made from the wood used in this project. Thanks for looking!

Looks great.. The handles are cut in an arc or are bent?

How did you curve the piece? Just cut out of a large piece of stock?

The handles were cut out of one large piece of stock.

Thanks for all the comments!

What are the dimensions? I have that issue of woodsmith and it only calls for the tray to be 6.5” wide…that seems insanely small.

I want to make mine wider, but i dont know how that impacts the joinery between the sides and handle.
