For a last-minute gift, I gathered some wood leftovers, and got inspiration from two nice little door handles.

The result is a small, long and modern-styled personal tea tray.

Step 1: Needed Stuff

- mini door handles,
- wood bard,
- 3mm thick plywood.
- wood glue, linseed oil.

- router,
- drill press,
- saw, sander.
I love the tray!! My husband drinks hot tea all the time and this would be perfect for him! <br><br>For the glass, I guess you can just insert the glass on top of plywood! it gives your plywood a protection, but also can see the plywood through it. :)
no no no this is a very good project, i personally like it a lot since my tray is already useless i am going to do the same. @Laxap sorry to say i prefer it like you did with plywood (i mean) to avoid scratches and heat from any cracks. thank you very much once again.
simple and cute
Very nice! I enjoy dabbling in woodwork but think I depend far too much on a fancy table saw!
Jay, with the right blades and jigs you can do almost all of your woodworking using a good table saw!<br>
Very nice. I think I will make one, but use a stopped groove on the long piece to hide it when you glue up the pieces. Or, make it a mitered corner and it would be hidden, too.
This is beautiful! I can see one of these sitting on my counter! I will have a place to go and find a pattern if and when I do this. Wonderful advantages of Instructables. One stop place for all your needs and it does not require any storage! Thanks for sharing!<br>Sunshiine
Thank you.
simple, clean design and the oil coat really brings out the grain (much better than polyurethane)!
Thank you. This is really really simple, but I the handles (drawer handles) and wood combination define the style.<br> <br> I am very fond of linseed oil, for wooden objects, used indoor. It protects well enough against liquids, and gives a silky aspect.
Great job!
Thank you.
Very nice, especially for someone who is elderly or ill.
Thank you. I initially planned to use glass instead of plywood, so the final aspect is quite different than expected.
