After seeing Julie’s routed out serving tray (she blogged about it here –, I was inspired to incorporate a similar design of a routed tray into my previous project (mini ramakin holders) and combine the two. Here is the result. This will be donated to an auction we have at our office to raise money for charity. Made from birch, cherry, mahogany and purpleheart. Finished with two coats of mineral oil.

One thing I learned from this project is that I need a dish carving bit!

Thanks for looking!

Thx for the comments folks.

Had to mention your work Julie. Afterall, if I hadn’t seen your routered tray, I would not have thought of doing something similar. Thank you.

Well, your changes are great! I like the stripes and the shape of your board. I’m thinking of doing some more trays, but different.
Not all people give credit, I’ve been copied almost identically and not even mentioned!
