If A Tree Falls In A Forest

Just like the rings on a tree, a good dinner party has many lives. Warm welcomes give way to hors d'oeuvres, which give way to cocktails and a trip to the dessert table. Let your party take root with this serving platter, beautifully crafted from teak root. Each richly stained slab of wood sits on an iron stand, creating a tiered focal point with stunning organic design. Handmade in Indonesia.

Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

    Comments about DOUBLE TIERED TEAK ROOT SERVING PLATTER:

    After receiving these platters in mid February of 2015 - two months after I needed them. I figured I would keep them in the box until late June, and then I would give them to my partners for the anniversary of our law firm as a surprise.

    Well, I just opened the box up and was sorely disappointed. Not only did I receive these items much, much later than I originally needed, but the quality of the gifts once I opened the box was DEPLORABLE. What I received in real life bears little, if no, resemblance to the items pictured on your website. The picture on the web site is elegant, clean, and sharp. It shows a nice side-cut of teak root bark and a shiny, sharp serving surface. What I received was cruddy, dirty, and dull. Massive cracks and holes fill the serving surface. I can't get over how ugly and dirty the product I received is. As received, they are wholly unusable for serving food.

    While I understand the disclaimer on your website that "Due to the recycled and handmade nature of this item, each is unique and will vary.", I can not fathom the low-quality and dirty nature of what I received.

          Comments about DOUBLE TIERED TEAK ROOT SERVING PLATTER:

          The larger piece of teak was only usable on one side due to a large whole in the middle that caused that side to not be flat enough to place a plate on. It also appeared to be decayed. The side that was usable was not finished well. You could still see saw marks! In my opinion, this product was not worth the several hundred dollars we paid for it.

          Service and delivery comments:

          The product arrived in February; 2 months after ordering in early December for a Christmas present. Customer service was kind enough to offer a gift certificate for the inconvenience.

          Comments about DOUBLE TIERED TEAK ROOT SERVING PLATTER:

          The product arrived as described. My issue is that the time didn't look as good as in the catalog photo. This product was a natural, one of a kind, piece and each one is different. That said, one of the two pieces of wood was an odd shape and look. It was disappointing that it didn't look as elegant as the photo but rather cheap. I guess this is the chance you take when buying a natural product.
          Also, I felt the design of the metal base was poor and falls over easily. This could have been remedied with a simple design improvement.

          Service and delivery comments:

          Delivery was prompt and included tracking number. Package was pretty beat up but product was protected inside.

            This is a beautiful piece. I have it on a cabinet near my dining room table. I have a 24" mesquite lazy susan on the table and the two look GREAT together.

              We think this teak root platter would look even more lovely topped with delicious appetizers! Do you love this two-tiered design?

              Kind of tired of the tree clocks,tables, etc. They have inundated decor in the south. Also looks like it takes up a lot of room cutting down on serving space. It might go well in a country cabin.

              I absolutely love this 2 tier wood serving tray!!! Depends on price if I could buy. If I had it I'd put some of my gem stones on it to display them.
