DIY Wooden Casserole Tray
Check out what I just BUILT! Wooden Casserole Trays… and I did it all by myself!
I saw a cool tray like this on Pinterest a few weeks ago so I pinned it and then after I read the easy tutorial, I decided to try my hand at a little woodworking. Please keep in mind that I had never used a miter saw or a compressor nail gun before but I learned quickly that it’s a lot of fun!
I enjoyed making the tray so much that I made several more the following day.
I’m thinking… Christmas Gifts!???!!!
Here are a couple of action shots so you can see that I actually cut my own wood and built the trays MYSELF. After I cut the first piece of wood, I belted out in song “I’m Every Woman…” My husband rolled his eyes at me… I think he gets that from my daughter 🙂
So here’s what you need:
2 pieces of 1″ X 4″ (6 ft pieces)
Gorilla Wood Glue
ASCP Clear Wax
ASCP Dark Wax
Sand block in medium grade
I got my wood at Lowe’s and got the two 6 ft pieces so they’d fit in my car.
Here’s the TUTORIAL
that I used from “Shanty-2-Chic”
I used ASCP on all of these trays with dark wax (which completely changes the paint color)

The country grey handle is from Hobby Lobby and the other two are from Lowe’s.
And it holds my 9 X 13 inch glass dish perfectly 🙂 YAY ME!
