The coffee cup series was written in April 2014 showing how to treat a new hardwood coffee tray into service and long lasting wear. The coffee tray was redone in October 2014 because the bottom board started to be removed by the coffee cups being stored after use.  The project did not quite fail because it lasted six months before it needed to be re-worked. 

This post is a shows the nine steps to prepare for the replacement of the bottom board with a new board without destroying the wood coffee tray. Because of the length this post has been broken into two parts.

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the Ryobi 7-1/4-Inch Circular Saw used to cut the whiteboard that will be placed inside the tray.
