Pretty straight forward… The tray sides are made out of mahogany, and the bottom is a glue up of some random pieces from the scrap bin, sorry I don’t know all of the species. Took a few hours to build and spent a couple days for finishing. The finish is three coats of Arm-R-Seal wipe on poly. The curve for the sides was rough cut on the band saw and routed with a flush trim bit with a template I found. The final dimensions are about 12×18x4. Thanks for looking
