£175.00 Sold out
Walnut Serving Tray - Frynkek is the Cornish word for Walnut, Dornow means Handle and Servyour is the word for tray.
Walnut trees are not common in Cornwall and to have a mature Walnut fall in a storm less than a mile from my workshop makes this a once in a lifetime opportunity to work with genuinely sustainable Cornish grown Walnut.
I have been developing the skills over the last few months to create the bent handles for these trays. Firstly it is most important to find the correct materials, only fast grown Ash has the flexibility to create such tight curves and there were many lessons to learn while I perfected the technique.
The tray is turned from an intersection of branches providing much interest in the grain and colours. A section of the raw, natural edge of the tree is visible on one side.
Measurements are 10" / 26cm diameter, a rim stands 1" / 2.5cm above the surface and the handles are each 4" / 10cm high, total height 5.5" / 13.5cm
Finished with food safe oils, this tray is suitable for daily use.
