A serving tray. I made four of these plus one that's about 15"x22"

And a small (~6" box) we call the "starfish box".

Really nice work!

Are the handles on the tray plywood?
I've seen your skill level and pretty sure you could make your own laminate, but they are a lot of layers there.

It certainly is a beautiful alternative to the typical raised hoop you see so often.

yes, it's a bent lamination. 8 layers, 1/16" each, for a total of 1/2". The form bends the two parts of the handle in opposite directions and clamps the ends flat.
