I had a big leftover from a previous project. (Table under the tray)
The wood used is called Ibira-pita, hard wood, common in Paraguay and north of Argentina.
So with a gouge and a hummer I carved all of this flower shaped tray. Then I inserted a small granite in the middle so you can cut the cheese there.
The sanding was done by hand with a lot of patience.
The finish was with 3 layers of olive oil.

Thanks Ivan, some places in south america the wood is VERY CHEAP. In this case I ask my father for a slab of QUEBRACHO, a red and very hard wood used in the train rails. But instead he brought me this ibira-pita from Paraguay where wood is cheap, and the slab was VERY BIG!
It is very beautiful wood.
