Honestly, my first post here at Lumber Jocks as well.
I’ve been a woodworker of sorts for most of my life, but mostly as a hobby, to fix things up, or build those things I for some reason think I myself am able to build, instead of doing things the easy way, by buying it from a store. Besides, What pride is there in saying, I doled out $249 for this small, chinsy serving tray at “the latest trendy store of the day”?
So, with my first post and long winded ramblings… I present my first serving tray, created for a friend of mine. The tray will be used at their vacation home in the South-West, that will hopefully be finished someday soon.
The woods used are Golden Oak, Purple Heart, Red Heart & Cocobolo, on the tray itself. Red Oak for the side and endscaps, as well as Black Walnut for the handles. Tung Oil is the finish used. 2 coats, nothing else.
The first pic is parts, wood and otherwise while finish prepping the pieces.
The second pic is the mostly built stage, where it just needs a few plugs put in place as well as the finish.
The third pic, being the end result, with the 2 coats of Tung Oil on it.
Thanks for looking, I hope you like it…
