Actually I made another tray over the last 3 days. Thought the first one a success so wanted to make one for my daughter who is having the family for Christmas Eve lunch. She was a guinea pig breeder so this started to look a bit guinea pig like and here it is. Vaguely like one from memory I think?
This is very heavy and hard wood – more eucalyptus so it would make a good door stop if nothing else. Weighs about twice as much as the Camphor Laurel one. So far has had only a coat of sanding sealer and one coat of tung oil. Glad I am not making them for a living as they take me 3 days to carve and then there is the sanding and finishing.
