I was asked to design and build wooden sake trays for a new Japanese restaurant The client asked for something a little more rustic than what they were using. My first prototype was too big and too rustic, and it did not have an under cut on the bottom edge so it could be easily picked up. The second prototype had the right form but I did not have a good solution for making the holes in the top to receive the glasses. The third prototype, that was approved by the client, was made from a top piece of rough walnut and a smooth, rectangular bottom piece of walnut. I drilled three holes in the top piece to receive the glasses. The two pieces were glued together to make the final form.
