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.

A wide band of Bird's Eye Maple, bordered with Wenge, contrasts nicely with the dark, rich colour of the Black Walnut. Dowels provide an additional and unique artistic touch to the composition.

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.
