I saw this serving tray on Ana's site and it looked like I could build it with the wood and materials I had laying around in the garage. Other folks had made some nice versions of the tray also, and it looked like something we could use around the home.
I was right on all accounts, except I had to spend about $1.50 for the 3/4" dowel.
The overall dimensions are 27" x 131/2". Tray dimensions are 21" x 12"
The frame is attached to the tray with countersunk 1.5" wood screws and buttons covering the holes. I added the brass round-head screws to each corner to give it an industrial look. Glue was used only on the dowel handles and the buttons. Otherwise no glue.
I also distressed the top edges a bit to give it a used look. With time it will get is own look but this is a star
This is really nice work your attention to detail and color scheme really makes this
Thanks for the kind comment. I try a lot of builds and some do come out right. Some day I will own that sliding miter saw and a router but for now it is just a few saws (my favorite is a small back saw) and clamps.
