It started out as a cb, but after I got through whitling and sanding, um, nice serving tray. The handles were made from the left overs. Drilled angled holes through the tray. Inserted dowels and marked the handles and drilled holes in the handles and glued it altogether.

Very nice work.. The Maple and Walnut look great. I bet there was a lot of waste to choose from for the handles.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!

I “Like” that concept.

Never had thought of that Combo but what a great Cutting Tray for serving wine and cheese.
Would very much like to borrow that idea, if I may?

Well done.

Okay, not too proud to admit I just started down the CB road and am in the middle of my first one… I”ll post the pics when I’m done. I know how to clue them up and expose the end grain now but what I’m wondering is how you pull off angular designs like that; very cool. I can speculate that it may be just cutting at a 45 degree angle on the table saw after the first glue up and then flipping every other piece? If I’m way off don’t laugh, but please do tell. I’d like to try this design on my next one.

Thanks for sharing and it looks great!

I borrowed the pattern from here, The handles were made by my “seat of my pants”. Cut some curves from the left overs and then used my router to round over the edges. Made the dowels from walnut.
