Nice! I like the adjustability. Good work.

Very good looking.   Be good for a lot of things besides recovery from surgery.    Hope she is doing well.

I like it! it's well built, not overly complicated and good looking! 

No name noobie here

Fine joinery. The Formicas black and brown colors match the color of the mahogany. 

The knobs are a nice touch. Don’t make the mistake I made and adjust one side higher than the other. It wasn’t breakfast in bed it was breakfast on the bed.

Pottz.
Very nice Serving Tray.  Well constructed.  I like the adjustable feature.  Perfect for a tilt when using the laptop and nice and level with raised edges to stop plates of food sliding off.

The best looking Serving Tray I have seen!!!!

Nicely done

Ryan/// ~sigh~ I blew up another bowl. Moke told me "I made the inside bigger than the outside".

Slick, adjustable and great looking g.
thanks kids. yeah level is a good thing. and yes when using a lap top you can tilt it. i tried using it once after we got new furniture for the family room but sadly it's about an inch too wide. oh well another future project i guess ?

I like the adjustment option that allows it to have multiple uses.  Having an easy to clean surface it another great feature. 
thanks barb!
