(*Please note that sand trays and rolling carts are sold separately*)
These are our most popular trays. At $229.00 they are priced mid-way between our fir/birch/pine/hemlock sand trays @$219.00) and our oak/ maple dovetailed sand trays (@$259).
Made from reclaimed woods, these sand trays have finger-joined corners which are exceptionally strong and reliable in construction of this type because it increases the area of the glue join. In addition to this all of our finger joined sand trays have hardwood pins that run the entire length of each of the corners. This also ensures long and useful life for these sand trays, they will hold up to many years of vigorous use.
The oak and maple trays are hardwood and will take a lot of punishment. The cedar trays are more likely to scratch on their exterior surface and are not recommended for itinerant therapists or in settings where the trays will get heavy use or moved around a lot, such as hospitals, hospices, or large agencies where multiple therapists are using the trays. Nevertheless, our cedar trays are popular because they are very attractive, perhaps more so than any of our other trays. If you would like to know more about our cedar trays or see some pictures please contact us.
As with all of our sand trays, the interiors are waterproofed and suitable for use with wet sand. The interiors have been given three coats of marine-grade epoxy for water-tightness, and an additional three coats of marine-grade sky-blue enamel, which is highly abrasion resistant and will be able to withstand many years of hard use with either wet or dry sand.
The exteriors of these sand trays are finished with three coats of a water-based polyurethane. This results in an easily maintained low-lustre and durable finish. These naturally light-toned sand trays look very professional in any setting and often have beautiful grain features.
As with all of our other trays, every one of our finger joined sand trays are a standard (Kalffian) interior dimension: 28.5” x 19.5” x 3”. The exterior dimensions of these sand trays are approximately 29.75″ x 20.75″ x 3.5″. This exterior dimension will vary slightly depending on the thickness of the material used (usually about 5/8″) but in every case the interior dimensions of all of our sand trays are exactly as required for standard therapeutic use, as specified above.
