In this video I make a serving tray with 3 types of joinery: finger joints to attach two pieces of wood together; a breadboard attached to each end with a mortise and tenon, using dowels with a draw bore; and legs attached with a sliding dovetail joint.

I made this tray from American black walnut and tiger maple so that there are highly contrasting woods to

Nicely done!

I made my own feather boards they work great.

T wagner says:

You are one of the few that elongate the outer holes on the breadboard ends so it can expand seasonally. Several "makers" don't know what to do.

Reinier Torres says:

Please turn off your saw when testing or assembling stuff on the table, a minor mistake and you can be seriously injured. Forgiveness is not in the table saws list of attitudes.

Michael Coceski says:

Hi Mike. I like your projects and presentation style. Just subbed.

Dale Brown says:

Someone needs to introduce this guy to featherboards…….

Anthony Lau says:

Looks like a great project for a wood class and great use of leftover end cuts. I would make this.

Kuffys Woodwork says:

Now that's a perfect serving tray for a woodworker!

Peter Ballard says:

Yeah I would make it. Probably wouldn't do as much finishing as you though. Just my style though.

Bruce A. Ulrich says:

Cool board, Mike! I think the finger joints are my favorite part.

Todd Weller says:
