SIMCOE COUNTY CRAB APPLE FARMHOUSE TRAY
SOURCE: Front yard large CRAB APPLE tree
AGE: 50-60 yrs
FINISH: Hand rubbed oil/food safe.
SPECIAL FEATURES: This large partially dead CRAB APPLE tree was cut from the front yard of a Stayner home. This is a mid trunk slab that was partially rotted.
Special techniques were used to stabilize the wood. The patina is spectacular with the heartwood swirled with white and brownish colours. The tray has pear shaped live edges leaving an extremely unique piece. Be aware NO ONE makes any products from crab apple---this is a very RARE tray. Use as an accent or table center piece also.
CARE: Clean with a clamp/soft cloth with dish soap. The tray is made for serving food + goodies. DO NOT CUT ON THIS WOOD!!!!!!!!!!!! Polish with Beeswax Salad Bowl Finish.
