How to Make a Wooden Chopping Board and Serving Tray

Great Saturday project

Assembly steps

Slice, dice and serve in style on this easy, cutting-edge project from Chris Ryland. We'll show you a simple way to dry-fit the parts, scribe the arc and then glue the whole works together. We used a 4-ft. steel ruler to scribe the arcs, but a yardstick or any thin board would also work. Be sure to use water-resistant wood glue and keep your tray out of the dishwasher or it might fall apart. And one more thing: Keep the boards as even as possible during glue-up to minimize sanding later.
