I saw this serving tray in Wood Mag. almost 2 years ago and thought would give it a try.It’s made from 2 different types of wood neither of which I can identify. If any of you know let me know then I can at least act smart about it when ask. The wood came from what I thought was a make shift gate or it could have been an old pallet. Any way it was laying in a ditch by the high way so I loaded it up and brought it home . The stuff cleans up real good.

Need to git some food save oil to put on it then it will look better

That’s really very NICE!

I can just see the chips with the salsa at each end… Yummy!

Beautiful job!

Did you use a router, template, etc.??

Thank you!

No joe I just drilled it out with a forstner bit and then smoothed the side with my ocillating spindle sander. Then I attached the bottom. I did use the router to round over all the edges. good question thanks for asking. I make ky own recipe of the salsa 1 mild and 1 hot thats why theres 2 holes( for bowels by the way).........Schloemoe

I like it, looks great and I love that it came from material that you found laying along side of the road.

Interesting, no idea what it is. What will you finish it with? Not oil right? I think shellac?
