Project Information

TV trays constructed from Spalted Maple and Black Cherry. Tops are 16" X 20" and stands about 29" high they fold smooth and stand solid and level. This began as a commission job for two Folding TV trays however when the buyer saw them he was delighted and before I left I had an order for six more folding trays, so it is back to the shop to complete the order. Thanks for looking may you have a Blessed day.

Nice work, beautiful wood, what else can a man expect but asked for more, that' s a reward and a compliment at the same time. Bravo and now get back to work, have a nice and safe day in the shop.

Wow, really beautiful. The spalted maple is fantastic, don't use up all yours for the order, save some for yourself. I can think of several nice projects for the home using this maple.
The black cherry is just as beatiful, is that the natural color or did you use a dye? I've used plenty of cherry, but none as dark as this.
Nice work.

Thank you all (Oldtool ask is,The black cherry is just as beautiful, is that the natural color or did you use a dye? )
No dye or stain only a clear Lacquer spray on finish. This Cherry was cut several years back and as you may know Cherry when exposed to light takes on a darker color.

Nice job. The spalt and that suntanned Cherry work well together. You are braver than me though. I'd be scared those mitered corners would spread if the panels of spalt move with seasonal flux.
