Here is a tray designed and mostly made by my wife. The only roll I played in this tray was cutting and joining.

She calls this tray let the good times roll, and I think it does. This tray is a tribute to a lot of famous pop artist and music posters. She spent two days going through stacks of her old magazines and cutting out pictures to make into this collage. She then painted the boarder all red, then changed her mind and painted it black. When she was sanding the black she accidentally went through the paint on the corners showing the red and immediately got really excited about how well it came out. She then finished it with wipe on poly.

Hence the term “Eureka!”

Came out nice … I like the red peaking through too!

I’d think about helping my wife make one of those … but it looks like she could do some damage when she beat me with it … so think I’ll pass! lol
