This DIY Wooden Serving Tray is a beautiful craft idea. It’s food-safe so you can use it as a cutting board too.

We used power tools and hand tools, which, now that I think about it, is super dangerous for a 9-year-old kid. But I survived with all my fingers and limbs still attached. I can’t remember how to use them at all, though, so this DIY Wooden Serving Tray is all Pete.
