Definitely not your average paper trays! If I had them on my desk, I’d be daydreaming (more!) about woodworking all day :). Cool concept, nice execution.

That is nice . I love the grain. The contrasting wood and construction are worthy of much praise. Thanks for re-posting these pics. Now we can see it better. Thanks Bruce.
