here again with an other Mother’s day gift. I made this little bit over sized, I saw the tray once on the web and like the shape, so I give it a tray this past wekend. Its made from Parota wood and Hard Maple, finish with Bowl Salad Finish from GF. Final dimensions are 24” x 14” x 2.75”
You may already know this but for some one who does not know the Parota wood, it’s is a very interesting wood to work with. I’d like to hear your experiences if you have work with it before.
Dust mask is a must the wood dust it burns like chilli peppers if you inhale the dust. had to keep the mask on as well as vac and ventilation system the whole time wile working with the wood, you can not even breath with the mask with out filling the dust on your throat
thks for stooping by!
