  1. Serving Tray

    My wife wanted a serving tray so I got on Youtube, watched Steve Ramsey and downloaded some plans. I used Cherry for the apron and Maple for the bottom. This was the second time I've resawn wood and it showed. I really wanted to match the wood grain and for me that was a challenge. I have a...

    These are a couple more Tumbling Block boards I recently finished. The circular one is my first prototype of one like that. They are made from the same combination of Hard Maple, Cherry, and Black Walnut. This time around I made a little jig for gluing these together in rows. I'll try and...

    A couple more projects got finished today. The first one is an Ambrosia Maple serving tray for chips and dip that has been fractal burned on the inside. I made the mistake of trying to sand it on the lathe with all the black ash in there and it got into the fibers of the wood . So I took a skin...

  7. Serving Tray

    This is a cedar serving tray with purple heart inlaid strips and border. The handles were tricky to make. They are cedar reinforced with poplar dowel carefully drilled out and inserted at an angle through the arch so it would be invisible. Finished with sanding sealer and lacquer.
