This is an unfinished tray I was commissioned to build for a friend in another park where they don’t have a shop.
The center section is made of 3 planks of 1” thick willow acacia and the strips are maple. The side rails are 1/2” x 2” pecan wood and they stick up 3/8” on the top side. It is 20 3/4 ” x 32” and 2”

The planks are joined with #20 biscuits and the rails are doweled to the planks. It will stay in Arizona instead of traveling to Oregon with them. I was concerned about movement of the planks and he said will will seal the entire tray top and bottom.

Cheers, Jim

Nice tray Jim. Should be stable with those #20 biscuits. What’s the overall size?

Beautiful tray with a great selection of wood. Is that the wood their chose or your choice?
You guys should set up a sign in the other park, drum up more business, or not. LOL

Jimbo goes jumbo! 8^)

Great wood selection, the maple breaks up the usual alignment issues had with single wood type glue ups. I cant imagine that that would be carried (serving tray), but certainly could carry an entire meal for a large group.

Beauty!

Very nice. I like the color contrast. Is this for a table top of some sort?
