Serving Trays come in a variety of formats; flat bottom or with ‘feet’ and sometimes with a lip around the edge (to prevent spillage). Generally, if feet are used, they are made from some type of soft pine to prevent potential damage to other wooden surfaces (like table tops). The flat serving surface is usually made from a harder timber and we like to use ‘featured’ boards – just because they look good.
A variety of different wood types are used but, as always, we prefer to use recycled or scrap timber plus mill off-cuts and flitches. All the boards are finished with Boiled Linseed Oil and our own recipe Beeswax Polish to give a natural look; this means they are also non-toxic and completely food safe.
There is a gallery of images (below) with some of the trays we have made. To view our current range head on over to our Etsy online store.
