Curved Tray Centerpiece
Whether it’s built as a gift project or for your own home, this gently sweeping curved tray is sure to look great with any decor.
Building small projects for decoration around the home can be quite satisfying. Consider this little weekend project idea: It’s perfect as part of a holiday display, or it can be arranged with candles and glass beads. Either way, it’s sure to be a hit when entertaining. And it won’t take a huge time commitment to complete. At first glance, the tray appears to be “carved” from one solid piece of thick stock. But actually, we came up with a clever way to cut out the three parts for the tray from one 12/4 blank of white oak, shaped each section and then glued them back together. The finished product is sure to leave your guests wondering how you made it!

The United States Customary System of Units (USCS or USC), more commonly referred to as the English or Imperial system, is the standard set of units for our plans. It uses inches and feet for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are in the United States, and it is the one we have traditionally offered on this website.
The International System of Units (SI), more commonly referred to as the metric system, is the alternative set of units that we have available for some of our plans. It uses millimeters, centimeters, and meters for measurement. This is the one you probably want if you are outside the United States. These plans are provided by our business partner, Australian Woodsmith, and are based on the original Woodsmith plan. However, dimensions and other elements of the plan may vary between the metric and standard versions. Be sure to double-check the plan before building.
