Very simple little project that was requested by my lovely wife.
I cut a small bead along the top edge of the two ends with a Stanley #45. The curve on the sides were cut out with a jig saw. Just the most basic butt joint.

Used a 7/8” Forster bit for the finger holes.

Rough sanded with 100 grit and put a mixture of equal parts minwax red mahogany stain, BlO, mineral spirits. Then sanded to 220 and re applied the mixture and sealed with a can of satin spray on lacquer.

I Just wanted to keep it simple and do it a little different..
Over all it turned out of for a 2 hour project..

More function than form.

Cool man. After seeing some of the tray in my shop, my wife has said, “Hey! I want one of those.” I like how this one turned out.

Just in time for valentines day. You have to fill it up with all kinds of goodies and give it to her. Well done.
