Default Finally made a tray

As part of the annual fall “cleaning/clearing” of the shop the cut off bin yielded a number of sticks that could be glued into a reasonably useful 1” slab. The question of course, useful for what? Well, SWMBO settled that with a request for a tray and a smaller version of Herb’s iPad stand featuring a 30 degree angle for use on the counter for reading recipes etc. of course completing one required another for a friend.
The first step, to ask the neighbor to re-saw the slab which was accomplished easily. A few passes through the 735 yielded smooth 3/8” thick slabs which were then resized for the iPad stand and tray. The plans for the tray were based on the “Arch-handled serving tray” from a 2014 issue of WoodMagazine. So, overall the projects were a bit of a community effort.
I used WATCO Natural Danish Oil was the finish for both projects.

And that is why you should never throw away small pieces of wood. Nice.

I took the tests and retirement is the best job I'm suited for.

Now I know why old guys wear suspenders.

And now I feel lazy....extremely nice set of projects. One question, I notice the handles are one inside and one outside. Is this correct or just my bad interpretation of what I'm looking at?
