This particular tray is made out of American Ash and Walnut hardwood, from the United States.
Like all of our products, I hand select the rough stock wood from my local lumber yard here in Nashville, and cut and plane the rough wood myself to be used in the work you see here. Ash and Walnut are harder woods on the spectrum. Unlike lots of reclaimed wood, pine, or poplar, Ash and Walnut are more durable and tougher to scratch...very difficult to scratch with your fingernail for example. Since it's harder and denser, it's also a bit heavier. These qualities make these woods great for making items like this, and will be more durable and last longer. Not to mention they're extremely beautiful.
However, like anything made out of real wood - you need to treat it with respect and take care of it. Thoughts it's finished and protected, we still recommend using coasters and cleaning up spills.
The product has been finished with Danish Oil to seal and protect it.
