I wasn’t going to enter the “serving tray” category of our Summer ‘08 Awards event, but then I saw GaryK project and was reminded that the point of the challenges is to inspire us to improve our own skills (well, that’s how I interpret them anyway).
This tray was made 420 days ago back when I knew, oh, not much about woodworking. I had just purchased my DowelMax to help with joinery and this was a practice piece. The cedar pieces are not as thick as the pine, thus leaving a place for fingers to reach in and pick the tray up.
I use the tray all the time and always get positive feedback about it. That always surprises me because it is simply a piece of pine with cedar attached to the ends of it.
It was fun looking back and reading my “learning curve journey”. I tried: I conquered :)
(Interesting to read that this was intended as a birthday present for someone. Oops. I wonder what they got instead! ha)
