Needed a little work to make it extend fully.
Great idea, with better quality, it could be a great product. It will NOT work as shipped. I must be reworked.
Clever design and GREAT well-thought out packaging/box (wasn't expecting that!) - but really should be executed better!!! I almost sent it back, but instead decided to put a little work into it... I had to trim and set ~5 little nails that were protruding (some by up to 1/4"...). No finish sanding was done - so edges are sharp and slivers are a possibility, and it had saw dust on it. No big deal - I fixed the nails, sanded the sharp edges, vacuumed it, etc. Bigger problem for me was the poor clean-up of glue at joints! I wanted to apply a very light stain, and finish sealer to protect the wood from spills - but once I put the stain on - it made your messy glue-job show up even more :(. If these issues were addressed, I would give Tray Chique 5 stars...! But as currently sold, I would recommend it only with the warning that it needs a little work to make it better...
The hardware came off whe the gift was opened. It's fixable but we shouldn't have to.
This is such a cool / fun concept, and I loved the idea of gifting this to a friend that is a big wine drinker and entertainer. I was really impressed with the price as well for something so different! I opened it up once it arrived and it is easy to figure out the opening and closing. It will securely fit a wine bottle, depending on the size. I was planning on padding it with a tea towel to be safe. The box itself has a very unfinished look, like it should be a paint-your-own craft from the store. The edges are rough cut and it feels cheap. I'm considering sanding and staining it before giving it as a gift! For the price though, as long as you know what you are getting into, I would say this is worth it.
Was looking for a Christmas gift (I always shop during the year) and came across the bottle holder/tray. I thought this was the perfect gift for a friend who already has a lot of jewelry & scarves. It's attractive and very functional and I'm sure she doesn't have anything like it and would love it.

Works great to transport wine and easily converts to a serving tray for a cheese plate
Unfortunately one of the gates was incorrectly cut so the door was too large to close with the hinge so it would have to be disassembled and re-cut. If it had worked it would have been nice.
