Snack trays

Whats a party without some snacks? As with my other wedding builds I started with an old cedar fence. Ran an edge through my router table to clean an edge up, and squared it off on the table saw. I ran it through my planner until it was pretty again. Cut the box to size with my miter saw and put 1/4" dado's in using my router table. One thing I do that maybe most people don't is that I cut my 1/4" ply using a razor blade knife and a straight edge. For some reason I just don't like cutting thin material on my table saw. I assembled using glue and my 16 gauge nail gun and putty for the holes.Anyways I then put a coat of stain on, heated up my branding iron and made my mark. Unfortunately for me I didn't get ANY of these snacks as I was too busy dancing all night long. All together I made 6 of these snack trays and was able to give them to our moms for future use. These turned out great!

  • What a great way to dress up your snacks! Thank you for sharing the build details! And when you have to choose, always dance now and snack later.
