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

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.
