Cedar Organizer Trays

This matching set of organizer trays is made from reclaimed cedar fence boards that were gray and weathered from being outside for about 20 years.  A few passes through the thickness planer cleaned them up nicely and made them about 1/4" thick, which is perfect for projects like this.

The overall dimensions are 12" x 16".  The front piece is 2.5" tall at the top of the arch and the back piece is 3.5".  The sides are 2" tall.  The bottom is a thin piece of plywood that sits inside grooves around the bottom of the sides.  I cut the dividers to fit and glued them in.  It is lined with self-stick felt from the craft store.

I hope the recipients of these organizer trays enjoy them as much as I enjoyed making them.  And, I hope the wood enjoys being inside for a change.
