So I was at peachtree the other day and I found a box of templates for making router trays and it came with the bowl and tray router bit and said what the heck I’ll give it a try, this was fun to make and the wife claimed it for her self. I am pleased with how it turned out but boy was there a lot of sanding to do, I did learn a few new tricks along the way so it was worth the effort.

Looks good. What a coincidence – I just laid out that pattern with three trays on my work bench to see what I need lumber wise. I already have the lumber for the two smaller trays with dip bowl. Headed to the lumber guy tomorrow. I can get maple at a discount for buying the short pieces. :-)

How thick was your blank to start with?

Thanks

Hi Mike the blank was two inches thick so this thing is huge.

Thanks. Looks like I have some gluing in the near future! :-)

I hope they trays turn out OK. Going to be a few made for Christmas presents. :-)

I can see why the wife wants to have it! It is pretty!
