Piece Together Your Party

A conversation piece to the core, this coaster tray brings customized art and handy coasters to the table. Each set is expertly crafted by a group of gifted friends, hand-dyed, signed and then numbered for authenticity. Inspired by a love for retro wooden tile puzzles, the coasters can be endlessly mixed and matched to form ever-changing designs. A poplin wood tray cradles the maple "tiles," pigmented with a special translucent dye that works with the natural grain of the wood for extraordinary-looking patterns. Handmade in Pittsburgh, PA.

CoasterTrays are made in small workshops near Pittsburgh, PA. through the combination of traditional handcrafting, woodworking and finishing processes with advanced technology.

The designs are first developed on paper, then transferred to digital form and printed with specialized dyes onto a release paper, which is transferred to wooden panels with a 400 degree heat press so the colors become impregnated into the wood fibers and are then coated with a UV sealer to protect them from moisture. The panels are then cut into coasters with a high intensity laser cutter to ensure accuracy and a fine burnished edge.

These hardwood trays are made from local naturally harvested Appalachian Hard Maple and crafted by people who used to build fine pianos.

This serving tray/coaster set is excellent. It's especially perfect for a sunny day outdoors to serve lemonade and the coaster are great quality. Love this! I highly recommend it!

Cool, but overpriced

I love the idea of having a tray and coasters combined into one piece, although I must say that the coasters mostly just get taken out two to four at a time and therefore the tray itself doesn't get used for anything else. Still, it is a very attractive and fun piece, very unique! I don't think it was exactly worth the price tag, though. I sort of had "buyer's remorse" over this one. I know it is a handmade piece but I think it was about $25 too much.

Very happy with purchase

I am happy to report that the tray looks exactly as shown in the photo. Very clean, geometric look with bright colors. Some of the coasters show the wood grain. Looks great on the coffee table! The only thing I wish is that the coasters had a little more weight to them. Most coasters I see have little grippy things on them or are heavy, so when you put down your mug or glass there is no fear of sliding. So far I haven't had any problems though.
