Add a unique ambiance to your dining and entertaining experience with this artistic, handcrafted exotic wood serving tray. Imagine sandwiches, charcuterie, cheeses, sushi, hors d'œuvres or crudités presented on this one of a kind exotic wood platter. Treat yourself...or someone special. Whatever the occasion, this elegant tray makes a great gift.

Bands of Wenge accent the dramatic pattern and colour of the Bird's Eye Maple. Dowels provide an additional and unique artistic touch to the composition. Actual knife may vary. Shown is one made from Nogal.

The bottom edges of the platter are deeply concaved to give a floating effect to the setting, and to provide a discrete finger lift. While the tray has heft, the overall look is both elegant and delicate.

Except for black veneer, no stains or dyes are used. The rich colours that you see are the natural colours of the finished woods.
