This is the finished mahogany serving tray I posted a ‘work in progress’ about earlier this month.
I’m very pleased with the result.
Check out the 4 min. movie I made about it on YouTube:

Very, very nice, Frank! It is absolutely gorgeous and I love the extreme attention to detail in the execution. It was neet to see the usage of the paper template.

Thanks for the nod to LJ at the end of the movie!

Beautiful! But will the finish survive being loaded down with a few pounds of boiled southern Louisiana crawfish?
