Decorative tray of boards

A decorative tray of boardsis a simple and useful project for craftsmen. For the manufacture of the tray, the "remnants of the boards" after another project are used, as well as the irregularities (chips, grooves, etc.) of the boards give the tray its unique look.

Materials and tools:

  1. board;
  2. saw;
  3. sandpaper (sander);
  4. black paint, spray paint and varnish for furniture;
  5. Vaseline and paper towels;
  6. foam brush and regular brush;
  7. Gloves
  8. beautiful black pens;
  9. drill, screws;
  10. carpenter's glue;
  11. nails and hammer.

Step 1

Take a board and drank 4 pieces (boards) of 55-60 cm long - “tray table” and 2 boards 33 cm long (these boards length depends on the width of the tray) - fasten 4 boards of the “tray table”. We can grind the boards with a grinder or simply with sandpaper.

Step 2

From the planks we will collect a tray.On top of two 33 cm, we put four 55 cm boards and nail them, also use wood glue for fastening.

After assembling the "countertop" of the tray, we will once again grind off.

Step 3

Put a pattern (see the figure) on the tray with black paint, use a foam brush to apply the paint. In this case, the pattern is applied randomly. We wait until the paint dries.

After drying, put on gloves and apply Vaseline on the black stripes - this will be needed later. We apply Vaseline only on those areas of black stripes, which will then be visible - Vaseline forms the final pattern of the tray.

Step 4

Now let's paint the tray with spray paint. After the paint dries, wipe the tray with a paper towel. In those places where there was petrolatum, the paint will be easy to wipe. After that, the tray can be covered with furniture varnish for protection.
