Well had a interesting time in the mountains. We had a bear that kept coming around, until the Game and fish finally came and took care of him after he broke into a couple of other cabins in the area. After that it was a relaxing time spent catching fish and enjoing the cool mountains1


Anyway, back to the serving tray. I decided not to add any more keys for fear of messing up a good thing. The silver wire inlay proved to be a little more difficult than I anticipated but for the first time it turned out ok, but I definately need more practice.


For the handles i just milled up a couple small blocks of bubinga and attached them using dowls.


The finish is 3 coats of tung oil and 4 coats of wiped on poly.



Thanks for looking

I really like this tray. I think you’ve done an over the top job on it, it’s terrific! Those splines really get me… that maple is perfect in there.

The splines look great, and add a really nice touch as if to combine the clean lines of a miter joint and the beauty of a dovetail in the same joint.
