My Serving Trays

My Serving Trays

One of my new favorite things that I'm making is the serving tray. I am making them from 100% found goods (curbside pick-up, yard sales, garage sale groups on Facebook, the Amish market, etc.).  I see these trays as necessities to intimate conversation times with friends or loved ones. I see someone using it in the morning to sit outside with their coffee, toast and devotional material. And, I see it being used around a fire pit as a place to set your Shiner, cigars and peanuts. To me, a serving tray is an accessory that brings people together or...

Amy's Table: w.i.p.

Amy, my best friend (since we were silly, little girls), has been looking for a thin entryway/sideboard type table. So, Richard, her husband, asked me if I could make one! Well, of course I'm going to try.  I started over. 3 times. So, here is where I am at this point. The top will be something like this: The legs look like this: Now I feel like I'm on the right track and this will be finished by the end of the weekend! Excited! There is a very certain surge of passion that comes with figuring something out and suddenly...
