I know this isn’t the most exciting project, but I made these serving trays for Christmas this year and my wife decided to make it into the base of our Christmas Dinner centerpiece. It’s just some Ambrosia maple that I salvaged from a fallen tree that was cut up for firewood. I finished with Howard’s butcher block oil, which really made the grain look interesting.

On a side note, hand cutting these thick slabs with my sawzall and a cheap hand crosscut saw motivated me to buy a 17” Grizzly bandsaw to make more. I really enjoy the look of the finished project, but I’m not going to hand cut any more that way!
