A small serving tray I made for my girlfriend (now fiance!).

For some time we had been in and out of shops where they sold all sorts of nice trays and goodies. And every time I’d say; “We don’t have to buy that, I can make that.”
But half a year later we still didn’t have a tray. It was time to jump in to action.

Luckily I had some pine planks from an old bed, the small ones on which the matrass rests, and plywood.
It is a quite simple design, and I think the grooves in the bottom plate make it look really nice.
I finished it with a thin coat of whitewash. Next year I think it will be at its peak in beauty, when there is some wear from usage. That’s when I will give it its final finish though I don’t know what exactly.

I hope you like it, please comment.
