Default Hand Carved Tray

I carved this tray out of Mesquite wood. This took a lot of time to make, but very pleased with how this Mesquite looks. Has a beautiful grain pattern. I used spoon gouges and a Shinto rasp, then sanded by hand. The pattern for the tray comes from a white oak leaf from my back yard.

I used my homemade beeswax / mineral oil mix for the finish.

Here is a tutorial on the carved tray for those interested.

Thanks for looking!
