Just a little serving tray for the nice Niece that is moving into a new to her house . (built in 1912 and fully renovated )
My own design with a Asian inspiration made from maple and walnut with a satin finish .
This tray and another similar turned out well and my wife thought that she would like one also so I have another in the finishing stage but it is quite different in design and I will post it soon .

Comments and questions always welcome .

Beautiful tray, Klaus… usual!! Another fine piece.
It perfectly matches the furniture it is sitting on in that 3rd shot. Both look to be the same type of contrasting wood!!

Cheers, my friend,.................Jim
