Sunset Serving Tray from Scrap Wood -- Woodworking

I finally made a set of plans for this project!! https://www.almfab.com/store/p/sunsetservingtray

In this video, I go through my scrap bin and make a serving tray.

With the variety of wood scraps I had on hand, I was able to create this sunset design going from dark earthy tones of walnut, rosewood, wenge, and padauk to bright golden tones of oak, poplar and maple.

DIY TIP: the more exotic woods were pulled from free bins outside of carpentry shops in my neighborhood.

I decided to make the various woods continue across the full length of tray and up the sides. Having this continuous grain through the handles, weakens them a bit, but trust me after hours of sanding this piece, it's plenty strong, and I think worth it for the sake of design.

This tray was made for my mom for her birthday. HAPPY BIRTHDAY MOM! Your the best mom I could ask for!

Thanks for watching!
