I made a pair of these trays about 3 years ago for a client who wanted the letter F as a symbol for their last name inlaid in the bottom. The wood is cherry with walnut F and keys. The F is cut out of veneer and glued to the tray bottom. I then sprayed the trays with high gloss oil-based polyurethane. Last I poured a bar-top finish (over the veneer) on the bottoms to make a level and durable bottom.
