Here are a couple of serving trays I made for my wife's boss. (Made 2 but only pic of 1). They are cherry with tung oil. Based on Woodsmith plan found in issue #165, June of 2006 if anyone's interested.

Thanks guys. I think cherry is my new favorite wood. Easy to work with handtools and the color/texture/grain is just about perfect.

Love the look of your tray. My daughter saw this and wants me to do one just like it only in oak. Are the slats gapped on the bottom? She wants it to be a solid bottom in case of a spill. I am thinking of putting a 45 on the top edged to make them look gapped but still spill proof. Did you have a pattern for the ends or just wing it?

JW, the pattern for the end is in the June 2006 issue of Woodsmith. There is a gap between the slats as this is intended for a BBQ cart. Your idea of bevelling the edges would work, just allow for some expansion at the ends.

Thanks all. I can't take credit for the bench. It's a Sjoberg and the wifey bought it for me.
