My wife wanted a serving tray so I got on Youtube, watched Steve Ramsey and downloaded some plans. I used Cherry for the apron and Maple for the bottom.
This was the second time I’ve resawn wood and it showed. I really wanted to match the wood grain and for me that was a challenge. I have a old bandsaw that drifts a little on the cut but when I planed the wood it really helped by taking out most of the imperfections. Still I have a gift at making simple projects hard and even with the imperfections I really love how the wood grain looks.
Thanks for taking a look.

Well done. Similar to one I made. You said you down loaded the plan. Where did you get it?

Thank You Magnum, appreciate it.

Wizard I got the plans from Woodworking for Mere Mortals with Steve Ramsey. I’m not great with links but here is as close as I can get: http://www.woodworkingformeremortals.com/p/woodworking-plan-links.html

Good Luck. He makes it very easy. Steve has a video and diagrams you can use to cut out some parts out with. That’s how I did the handles. He does it a little different but we always change the plans somehow. If that doesn’t work let me know.
