So many of us have been inspired by @designvh619’s acrylic coaster set. I just thought there are many coasters out there, how about a snack tray set. My first tray was a bit of a failure, but the idea was sound. it is surprisingly challenging to come up with an overall design that also makes sense as individual pieces. Initially I made a simple wooden base for it, but that didn’t look right either. I settled on a base of thick clear acrylic the trays fit into, and added a blue layer of acrylic underneath, which gives for a very nice effect. I printed the tray designs on the reverse so you can eat off the smooth side. Here are shots of the individual trays (hardly does it justice though). Each tray is 9" x 4.5". Designs are from OpenClipart with some adaptation. They’re still sorting out after being hacked.
These are simply lovely. I think I would use these more than coasters. The layering effect is very cool and the whole thing is so functional, as well. And, the stand is extremely neat…so simple yet very elegant. Reminds me a lot of how I made this LED light…same thought process…layers of related images to create a whole picture. I think you will agree that it’s lots of fun and quite a challenge to line all the layers up correctly.
