There is no such thing as having too many serving trays right? Especially when they’re this easy to make and pretty to look at. You can DIY this wood slice tray for a fraction of what it would cost at the store. Not to mention it makes a fabulous gift!
- Hand Made Modern wood round
- drawer pulls
- wood stain
- clear polyurethane spray
- small rag
- parchment paper
You can find these wood slices in the craft aisle at Target. Target also has drawer pulls, but don’t be afraid to head to the craft or hardware store for those instead. Personally, I think Hobby Lobby is a good place to start because they have an amazing variety of drawer pulls and they’re on sale regularly.
Create a template to make drilling the holes in the correct spots easy. Place parchment (or any other semi transparent) paper over the bottom of a drawer pull and mark where the screws go.
Decide where you want the drawer pulls to be on the wood slice, and tape the paper template there.
Using the template, drill holes through the wood slice.
Use a rag to apply the wood stain to the top of the wood slice.
When the stain is completely dry, spray the wood slice with the clear polyurethane. Spraying the natural edge helps the wood from flaking off so easily.
Once the clear polyurethane has dried you can attach the drawer pulls to the wood slice.
My tray is just the right size for a cup of coffee and a couple of cookies. You could easily personalize it with some vinyl, or change up the look by using drawer pulls that match your style.
