Made from cabinet-grade 15 mm. Baltic birch plywood (approximately 5/8”) these sand tray exteriors are finished with three hand-rubbed coats of natural tung oil. This results in an easily maintained low-lustre and durable finish, sure to stand up to years of heavy use. This naturally light-toned and clear-grained sand tray looks very professional in any setting and will thrive through many years of vigorous use.
As with all of our hand-made sand trays, the interiors are water-proofed and suitable for use with wet sand. The sand tray interior has been given three coats of marine-grade epoxy for water-tightness. Added to this is an additional three coats of marine-grade blue waterborne finish(by Milesi). This is a highly abrasion-resistant finish that will be able to withstand many years of hard use, with either wet or dry sand. This sand tray is shipped with a low-lustre interior sheen, in the appropriate sky blue as prescribed for Kalffian sandplay.
The tray corners are finger-joined, which is a very sturdy and reliable method of assembly because it greatly increases the area of the glue joint. In additional to the precise-fitting finger-joins on the corners, hardwood pins are placed through the entire length of each of the sand tray corners. This ensures structural stability.
