Intro: Make a Button Tray
A $1.99 round teak tray is easy to convert to a unique button tray. Great for a gift to a friend with a new home, a shower gift or a birthday gift. Wrap it up with a bottle of wine for the perfect gift.
Step 1: Measure and Mark
Measure and mark the center of the tray with four pencilled dots to look like the holes in a button.
Step 2: The Drill Bit
Attach the drill bit that is made for cutting out large holes from doors for locks or cutting holes in drywall.
Step 3: Clamp and Drill
Carefully clamp the tray to a flat surface and drill out the four holes.
Step 4: The Four Holes (not a Rock Band)
The tray is starting to resemble a button but it needs some finish work.
Step 5: Smoothing the Cuts
With medium sandpaper, sand around the edges of the hole and any part that feels rough
Step 6: Give It Some English
Add a little Old English on the sanded wood to even out the color
Step 7: Cute As a Button Serving Tray
Serve your guests, or your best gal or guy a little goodie on this cute button tray.
