This is another tray, this one is 100% Redwood. I love the chunkiness and subtle terrain of texture and color. Redwood is valuable, and actually very hearty as it repels bugs, water and fungus. While you don't want to leave this out in the soaking rain, if it is used as an outdoor tray it can withstand some abuse, as it resists shrinking and warping. I have used wood glue and brad nails to connect the slats so obviously you don't want to throw this in the swimming pool with your margarita balanced on it as you float around in a delirium. If you must have it, it can be yours.
