Make a DIY Herringbone Balsa Wood Tray

I love trays. I use them all the time and can't really get enough. So I am quite excited that I recently ran across a fabulous herringbone tray that just stole my heart and got my DIY juices flowing. Follow me after the jump to find out more.

The girls over at Style Me Pretty joined up with Rebecca Hansen Weddings to bring us a a step-by-step tutorial that makes attempting a herringbone pattern a little less intimidating. It is made using Balsa Wood, which is quite soft and thin and can be cut using a utility knife. After that it seems to be all about the glueing.
