Added a cheese serving tray to my wife’s kitchen today. Made the tray from cherry and mahogany with purple heart and canary accent strips. It’s overall dimensions are 7” W x 15” L, with 7” x 10” dedicated to the cheese serving area.

As with all my food safe projects I used three coats of mineral oil followed by two coats of beeswax and orange oil.

Pretty tray, and a good marriage of the different woods you used.

I saw a bit of an optical illusion with this when I first glanced at the cheese tray. It looked like it was sunken into a very lacy pillow. Had to look twice and I see now that it’s a beautifully made tray too! I love the contrast of the different grains of wood and I’m sure your wife is very pleased with it also!

I was going to make something similar with a cross grain piece on the end to make a “breadboard end”. Mine is going to be 8” wide so I’m thinking the usual method to allow for cross-grain expansion is unnecessary on such a narrow piece. Anyone have any thoughts on this?
