These were from my blog on using the bird mouth bit to get easy to get perfect angles, clamp, and glue.

These are about 2” high and 10” across the flats. First tray is zircote with a walnut burl bottom, second is Karelian birch burl with a white oak burl bottom.
The trim and corners are walnut, copper rivets in the top ring.

Details on construction in the blog.

Thanks for looking!

So lovely. Wow. Not sure of covering up that pretty burl with “stuff” – more of a centerpiece to appreciate

Oh, I was reacting to your statement that people always need places to put “stuff”...just not covering up that burl ;) ok, maybe small stuff.

And yes, I could start a business with dog hair lining.
