This is finished with 3 coats of wipe-on poly and waxes. All imperfections in the surface have been epoxied and it filled in and smoothed out great… first time using any kind of epoxy. Could be used as a serving tray for bread/cheese. Definitely NOT a cutting board. Thanks for the looks and comments

Very cool. Box elder is great when you find the perfect one.

Pretty wood. What is the size of the tray? And how thick?

Very nice piece giving off all those features. I also wonder what the thickness of the wood is.
