Judy wanted a serving tray ever since I made one for her daughter and I finally got around to making it. To make her feel better about the time it took to finally get started on it, I carved her initial on both long sides. She loves it. I resawed 4/4 rough cut cherry and planed it down to 0.300 thick, bandsawed the scallops, carved the letter “A”, then mitered the corners at a compound angle (see first tray). Sanding, smoothing the edges, wiping it down then glue and assemble. Clean up the squeeze out and spray several coats of polyurathane. I made parts for 3 more trays (no initials) at the same time for speculation sales. I used about 6 1/2 board feet of 4/4 rough cut cherry.
