Man-Trays Part II – Several days ago I posted a group of three dresser trays, you know, for keys, coins, wallet, jewelry, etc. Well, those all turned into gifts, and I had requests for more, so back to the lathe. The first two are Walnut with Maple racing stripes; the second pair are Butternut with twining Maple vines. All four are about 5.5 inches square, and the feet are covered with soft leather. Finish is spray poly for durability.

Always getting in trouble for leaving stuff on the bench, these are a great idea to have a “spot” for stuff.

Thanks for sharing your ideas.
