The 'Meta Walnut' tea-tray is made of a chunky piece of walnut and has been laser engraved with my 'meta-morsa-fish' line art after which Dragon Gate Designs is named. Inspired by the Japanese legend ~ a coy that swims up-stream where it reaches Dragon-Gate and transforms into a dragon.

This tray is a smaller sized piece, ideal for a small table and small daily tea ceremonies.
It is approximately 10 inches wide and 13 inches long.
The price of this piece is reduced as a unpredictable birth-mark started to reveal itself in the final coats of the final finish. A lot of care and love went into it and we hope it will find a lovely home to be enjoyed ~ as is.

Basic Care Instructions: Wipe with a damp, soft cloth :: Avoid the scratchy side of the sponge. While it can handle the heat of tea, make sure you do not place tea-lights on the wood.
FYI: As the shipping cost is auto-calculated based on dimensions and weight, while we are not sure what the exact weight will be after proper packaging for these one-of-a-kind pieces, I have buffered the amount a little. Just in case the actual shipping cost will be lower than what you ended up paying, we will reimburse you for that amount.
