A weekend project
If you have a weekend free then make this lovely tray. Perhaps you need an additional Christmas gift that will hone your skills at the same time. It has many obvious and not so obvious uses ranging from small tools tray to pocket dump container or tea-for-two server. I use one for my drawing pencils and a second one for tools like vernier callipers and protractors. I designed it as a simple tray and it has decent joinery for both solidity and skill building.
What more? It is a two-part series that’s free to all woodworking masterclasses subscribers.
