Hunk of 8/4 walnut trued up and cut to blank size. Starting to route out the tray sections.
Step 1: Edge
Finished routing out tray sections. Added a spline of walnut into a blank for the sides. Cut them in such a way that the grain will wrap around the tray.
Step 2: Splines
Used a jig on the table saw to cut spline slots in the corners.
Step 3: Sanded
and ready for finish.
Step 4: Finished
A few coats of vinyl sealer sprayed on. Sanding with 320 in between. Thanks for looking y'all.
