Carved out this tray this morning, very relaxing. I had envisioned 4 straight little round legs to lift it but after trying 3 different lengths I still couldn’t make them work so I took a walk and looked for some curved branches. I found one with a nice fair curve, sanded it and epoxied it in place. I think it works, how about yall?

Looks sweet to me, I’m a live edge kinda guy. I must be great to walk around and find material whenever you want it.

Thank you, thank you, thank you! A buddy gave me a bunch of cedar slabs four or five years ago and I have been wondering what to do with them. Do you mind if I make some similar to this? I love the idea and hope that mine turn out as good as yours.
Have a good’un

Love the live edge, nature did a good job starting this, and you did a great job finishing it.
