Serving tray based on a design in Woodsmith magazine.

Dimensions are about 10.5” x 18”, stock is all 3/8” thick. The original plan in the magazine called for only a 6.5” width. I wanted mine wider.

Made of curly maple with sapele handles. The handles were cut from a solid piece of 8/4 stock on the bandsaw. Finished first with a coat of dewaxed shellac and TransTint vintage maple dye, then sanded. Followed up with GF Arm-R-Seal semi-gloss wipe-on poly.

This small project was one of my most complicated ones to date.

Thanks for looking!

Nice looking. I’m sure those curves added a bit of sport to construction.
