I am currently working on key cups (trays?) for an upcoming craft show. I have 12 cut from Mesquite and two from spalted apricot. If I had started with larger blocks of wood, I could have used our regular sanders to sand the insides. But since I didn’t, we’ve had to rig something up. I’ll try to post more pictures as I go.

Nice looking wood. Also curious if you did them with the router?

Thanks, men! Yes, they were cut with a router, using a thrown-together jig that worked fairly well.

I finally added more pictures. I ended up with 10 trays that I took to the craft show. The only one that sold is the one I almost didn’t take. Notice the picture with spoons, spatulas, and spurtles, which were also for the show (and also didn’t sell) and are now on Etsy. I decided the round one made a good candle holder.
