A shattered plank from the stern stuck out, a souvenir from the recent exchange. I ripped it out and shaped it with an axe and attached two scrap pieces of metal for handles. I filled it with supper and served it to the crew. As the serving tray hit the table the crew paused for a nautical second or two. The air then filled with a thousand huzzah’s, and all was good.
This sapele tray is large and in charge with big cleat handles and strips of maple accenting the surface.
