Very nice work. The first serving tray really has a 3D look to the bottom.

Nice work. I think you meant “serving” tray for the title, but severing is much more funny. :) I’ll have to start calling my cutting boards severing trays. Way cooler! Nice inlay, by the way. The purpleheart retained it’s color well. Mine has always dulled to a brownish hue very quickly after milling.

hahahaha was it an intentional play on words (severing tray) or just the sheer excitement of posting these beautiful projects that led your typing astray ? My eyes love the colors and craftsmanship here !!! Great job : )

Really nice looking trays. And, I believe these types of trays originated during the French Revolution, so maybe Severing Trays is accurate. ;^)

Joe, those are great looking. Are those designs part of the base or are they inlaid?

They are part of the base, someday I would like to learn to be able to do inlaid work. Thank you for your kind words

These are great looking trays. The patterns give the pieces a lot of visual interest.

Well done.
