I made this box for my Father for fathers day, he is always having barbecue’s for my family, and his table outside was always full, so i thought i could house the paper plates inside a box so they would not blow away and make more storage above them. Then I had the idea to add the steak knives, and utensils. The utensil boxes are all removable. I made the knife block out of a alder, and the top and bottom are made of Cherry, the sides are made out of Maple, I alternated the wood for the plugs for screw holes, and the utensil tray was made from maple and hard wood dowels, I finished it off with danish oil. my dad liked this, and i am sure it will free up some room on his serving table outside.

Good looking and well designed serving tray! I’m sure he loves it. Will get lots of use for many years.
