My first real woodworking project made of ambrosia maple and walnut. Drew on paper, then sketchup. Used router pattern bit on handle and valley under the handle. Handles have tenons connecting it to the frame. My first time using a plunge router to create the mortises. Finished with two coats of danish oil and two coats of poly.

Very nice! Is the bottom a solid piece of wood? Or is that a veneer? Very nice tray.

I like the grain running in the short direction. Adds a nice different take on a tray.

The splines are a great touch. Great result for a first-timer, you should be very proud!
