This tray is wonderful. The wired edges are durable and look great. Having a removable board for the base is great. Paint on both sides and buy extra wood pieces to paint for holidays. It exceeded my expectations

I too was surprised by the quality of this tray in that it is not wimpy but very substantial but a little on the heavy side. Because of this it is nice that the inset comes out and being a teacher I find this so much easier to handle while teaching.
I was plesantly surprised when I receied the tray.........it was much nice then I thought it would be. I think it is a good piece especially if you teach, you only need to carry the insert with you as a painting example......
