here is the story, pretty simple and to the point, me and my sweetie eat dinner in the living room and we eat dinner around 6 while we watch Dr Quinn Medicine Women..this is pretty much the only tv i watch, but we needed a nice stable tray to have our plates sit on, so the grizz and my wife will eat in style, the woods used here are walnut, oak, red cedar, cherry , maple and mahogany, i finished them with three coats of poly on the top and 2 coats of BLO on the bottom side, tonight they shall be christened, and we shall eat in style from now on…thank you for taking the time to look in, and thanks for any comments you would like to leave…grizz

Beautiful trays Grizz! That piece of figured walnut on one of them is the standout piece. Psst, hey Grizz, if your wife appreciates the beauty of that piece, make that one hers. I am sure she deserves it. If on the other hand, she doesn’t have an eye for such things, keep that one for yourself. Wink, wink!

Yes, those are the Grizz colors! They look wonderful together. You are the only person I know who can take so many woods and make them look like they belong together. Bon a petit Grizz!

Well if the only TV show a guy watches tells us something about his character, well, I’m confused.

On my to do list is to build us some kind of tray or stand for our laptops. These are great!
