A vey nice piece on which to hold your sentiments. She will adore this tray, not only for the item that it is, but for the love that is in it!

Great job!!!

Oh, I almost forgot, Happy Anniversary!

Thank ya’ll.
Jerrels, It is an easy piece to do. Five pieces. Only two pieces to scroll if you stack cut, which I recommend since it’s only quarter inch thick material.

One thing I wish I’d done different.
I didn’t catch it till it was done, but I wish I had made the bottom of the side pieces half inch instead of quarter, and laid out some kind of finger joints to attach the bottom that would match the corners better. It turned out nice, but that idea would add that “special” touch to it.
If I get time, I may just go back and do that before Friday.

Happy anniversary, super tray there!. I feel the same way about my wife shes great. She is taking off 3 days this week to unwind from the stress of her job and loves to quilt,sew and do crafts. She said she was going to buy a device that she can strech silk on and paint or dye so I found some photos on line and even though my shop is not finished I am sure I can crank out a nice silk-thingy-rack

Now that is really nice William. She will be thrilled with it, especially if you lined it with $100 bills.
