I made the Dessert Serving Platter. It could also be used as an appetizer serving tray. It is made out of 1/2 Cherry and the center area is dropped down 1/4 inch. It is finished with a French oil finish that really brings the grain detail. This is best used by placing a glass plate in the tray and NEVER placing food directly on it.

I am getting ready for the fall craft shows. If I happen to sell a few along the way – that is OK. Last year I got caught short but never again.

All three of your tray projects turned out good.

Jerrell, I thought at first that was chip carved around the outer edges but at closer look it is scroll saw work! Very nice indeed.

Nice looking platter. What size is it and how did you cut out the middle round area?
