Walnut Serving Tray.

I made this on Thanksgiving. I got the inspiration form a older issue of Woodsmith Magazine, issue 165. The original was made to be used outside at the grill. I used their basic dimensions and made it my own from there.

A very simple little project that I got to use a lot of different skills to build. The sides are 1/2” thick and the bottom is 1/4” set into an 1/8” rebate. The side are joined with a simple butt joint that I reinforced with 1/4” dowels.
