I made this router tray after seeing the one that Julie made. I made this from Bradford Pear that I milled last summer. I finished this thing 3 times. I first finished it with wipe on poly, but I didn’t like it because it seemed too plasticy, so I sanded that off and tried just finishing it with a wax buffing, but I didn’t like the lack of color development, so I sanded that off and finished it a third time with Watco Danish Oil, then buffed with the Beall Buff system.

I like the simple design and I just got the perfect bit to try this. Bradford Pear is fast becoming one of my favorite woods.
