Hello, I have done several matching cutting board serving tray projects, they are always well rec’d, but I kept trying to get the woods to look the same which is always “close” with an end grain board. It came to me one day why not do an end grain tray to match an end grain board? this is the first attempt with a perfect match since they were both built with the same boards. A lot of work but the end result was well worth the effort. Woods used are Walnut, Paduak, Cherry, Ash, & Hickory. Finish is Howard’s Butcher Block Conditioner. The tray finished dimensions are 12 1/2 wide by 21 3/4 long 1 1/4 high. Forgot to measure the board This was a wedding gift for my next door neighbor’s Daughter Maria who got married yesterday…..............................Jack.
