Hello Lumberjocks, I haven’t posted any projects lately so will try to catch up. This is a serving tray I made to match a cutting board I made for my friend Julie about a year ago. I am going mostly by memory & a cell phone picture to match the woods. (Since of course it is a suprise) I had a fair amount of head scratching & obsitcles to overcome on this project, (mostly created by myself) but this turned out really good. I don’t think the photos do it justice compared to an in person look. The woods are Black Walnut, Bloodwood, Cocobolo, Padauk, & Wenge. I finished it with Howards Butcher Block Oil (w bees wax), my favorite. The dimennsions are 1 1/4th inches tall, 21 inches long, 12 1/4 inches wide. Thanks for looking, Questions & comments always welcome.

-- Jack R. Ellis

Good work. I like this pattern, but i hadn’t thought to do it in mostly orangish and dark woods, It works though.

-- Robert, so much inspiration here, and so little time!
