End grain White Cedar Tray…


This is the tray that I made with the end grain Queensland White Cedar panel…

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It was in the last teaser..Here is a shot of the laminating of the handle.. Several strips..each only 1/16 inch thick… glued up on a bending frame..I made this using the patron jig…




I then cut notches in the frame of the panel.. by hand.. ok I used a saw.. but it was a Japanese pull saw…to inlay the curved handle.. Came up a treat for a first attempt.. please excuse the small gaps and the bad photography..

Size 16 inches by 12 inches approximately…Timbers used… Queensland White Cedar… end grain… panel… New Guinea Rosewood… frame…Laminates of Camphor Laurel and Queensland Maple… handle.New South Wales Rosewood.. strips on the edge of the tray…One coat of Danish Oil at this stage.. a few more coats will be required to bring up the finish on the end grain…
