SELWYN HOUSE Fumed Oak Oval Tray


A modern and versatile oval tray with a pared-back, minimalist form, crafted from fumed English Oak. 

The exterior sides are straight, with a gently curved interior.

Selwyn House have made this tray from air-dried, English quarter sawn Oak, which then undergoes a remarkable natural reaction in a fuming cupboard, turning it a deep, rich dark brown, whilst retaining the grain and texture of the timber. 

Finished in a food safe hard wax oil for durability, the tray can be used as a piece of kitchen or tableware (but to preserve the appearance it should not be used as a surface for sharp objects).

This versatile tray can be used for candles in the centre of a dining table, or in a bedroom or living space as a surface on which to display favourite objects.


  • Length 22cm, Width 14cm, Thickness 2.5cm 
  • Made in England 
  • Made from English quarter sawn oak

How to care for your tray 
Not suitable for dishwashers or submerging in water. For best results wipe clean with a damp cloth and use a Wood Balm regularly to preserve the finish.

About Selwyn House
Established in 2017 by Sean Best and Ellie Smalls, Selwyn House create functional yet beautiful wooden tableware that doesn’t compromise on sustainability. Their pieces are born from a love of great food and gathering together for simple feasts. Every piece is made individually by hand in their workshop in rural Northamptonshire, exclusively from trees which are grown in Britain and sourced in small batches from independent sawmills. Rather than the tropical timbers so often found in commercial woodenware, Selwyn House choose to use the fantastic hardwoods available right here in this country - hoping to play a small part in highlighting the beauty of British timber and the need to invest in its future.
