Coffee spillage being the subject of the phone call, I decided to make Mom a serving tray. English Sycamore was veneered to a qtr inch oak ply. Frame and panel construction with half lap joints. Handles were cut from a curly maple board, and shaped like Ribs. Clear poly was applied, 6 coats. The ends of the handles feet were pegged for added strength and detail. Walnut plugs were inserted on the bottom corners for clearance. The tray completed, looks fit for a queen.

Very nice piece of woodworking Bradford. I especially like the handles and the finish really brings out the beauty of the wood. Well done!
