Broken Coffeepot / Burlesque Tray
#6
  Re: (...)
Since our coffeepot turned into a mere "steam generator" yesterday, and I haven't got that resolved yet, this morning I got local Starbucks stuff to take to my wife.  So I got out the serving tray I had made during the Great Recession, when I was building a lot of stuff and re-using every scrap of wood I came across.

This was built when I was reducing power-tool usage and taking up handtools for the first time.  The dovetails are pretty sloppy, but they filled up nicely with dark epoxy!  The tray-bed was based on a very old scrap plywood slab which did warp again stubbornly later, so I trued up the base on my wife's "granite test slab" as shown, using a block plane.   The hand-grips were based on drilled holes rather than a router pattern.   I did rely on a router for the inlays.  I had a 4-up matched set of veneers which I roughly glued onto the plywood.  Rather than try to 'butt' all the veneers precisely, I did the rough-install, then routed out precise 1/4" channels for the decorative strips.

Happy woodworking!
Chris

Very nice!
I like the drilled handholds.

Cool! (Maybe, smokin'!)  Big Grin 

Does the filler imply epoxy glue, too? Every time I read about using original sawdust and glue for filler, I think: let's just fix it using channels and accent materials.

Very nice! I like the inlay, it's something on my bucket list!
