Small Serving Tray with Waterlily

Postby MisterBob » Fri Dec 26, 2014 8:50 pm

I got some good advice here on a problem that was vexing me, thanks, Steve! So I at least owe a nice project to the community.

Image

Here is a serving tray I made for my mother. http://toolmakingart.com/images/Serving%20Tray/Serving%20Tray3d.crv3d

The trickiest part, apart from the cutting path bleed issue that dealguy11 solved, was getting the profiles to match. The final cut profile and original contour were not a very good match.

Image

So I had to cut the profile, trace it to paper, photograph it and import the image to Aspire.

Then I was able to alter the cuts and make a fairly nice joint.

Because this tray is for food, I wanted the details to be cleanable. So I used a ball nose mill to carve smooth details.

Image

This was made with 1/4" Baltic plywood and Maple.

I am pretty sure she was! This is hard to stick on the refrigerator, so I can't be positive. :D
She did request a second one so the odds are good though.

Good work on this sweet project. Is that pac-man in the design?

The silhouette of a waterlily leaf tends to run somewhere between a packman with pursed lips and a bum. My Mother's favorite video game ever is Mrs. Packman, so the double connection is not a bad one.
