I guess I’ll have to enter this in the summer awards contest just because I was already making it when the contest was announced. What a coincidence!
In reality, this is just a very simple tray (read: not contest-worthy) that I made for two reasons. 1) To try out my fleur de lis inlay template, and 2) to experiment with pore filler. I’d never used pore filler before, and was curious to see if it would really allow me to get a glass-smooth finish on walnut. A tray just seemed like an obvious choice, since it would give me a large flat surface to work with.
I’m happy to report that the Behlens water-based pore filler works as advertised. Finish is multiple coats of wipe-on poly.
