Wooden Cutting Boards / Shade Tree

These trays are really built to last with only solid hardwood and traditional dovetailed corners, just like fine furniture. They are hardy and require little extra maintenance. Do not soak in water, but if you have food or wine spills just wipe it with a damp rag. The colors are created using a hand-rubbed dye, then varnish over the top for a durable finish. Because the finish dries clear, you can still see the natural wood grain underneath, but with a great color to enhance the grain.
