I have two such trays. Both were designed to sit on an electric range when the stove is NOT in use. Only one gets used, now. The other needs a base to sit on, like for sitting up in bed. A look at the tray
The three side pieces are White Oak. The end ones have handles cut out into them. The rest of this tray is reclaimed Black Cherry. Reclaimed because it was at one time a floor joist!
Thinking maybe some short legs, maybe 12” or so. Maybe 1×1s even. The aprons would be almost hidden. Thinking maybe a half-lap joint to join two long rails in an “X” under the tray. Maybe a bridal joint where they meet the legs. I could make the bridal joint into a dovetail-like through joint. Going for hand tool looks. Looking at a way to attach the base to the tray.
As for the other tray
It can be the stove sitter from now on. Just old, reclaimed Pine, with some Beech as the rails. Daughter painted the star. One HEAVY tray.
