Made these for a friend..a gift for his wife on valentines day! Tried to match them a s close as possible to each other. I don’t have any build pics..and I don’t even have a nice finished side by side…I need to get better at photographing my finished work.

Nice set of board and tray .
The tray is made from a board bland and then cut and build up into a tray or is it routed to shape ?
Nothing wrong with the pics it’s just the background has to much information that distracts from your nice project .

Thanks everyone. The tray is made from a single blank not routed. I got the idea here. Follow the link in the post to a really well done how to.
Ya I have to get myself that roll of white paper to use as a background for photos..and some lights too..
