The trays fit together neatly as shown and are ready for painting and other finishes. However, the bottom is very thin balsa wood. We will be reinforcing them with Masonite panels (since we have some on hand. I plan to decoupage the inside of the trays, but that won't be enough to make them durable enough for normal use. They are not designed for use as serving trays.
These are better than the trays that you can get at a big craft store, seems a little better construction in terms of finishing. But they are lightweight. Regardless, they are sturdy and make great bases for projects.
I have an older wood burner but it never worked as well as this one. I'm very impressed at all the different fittings that can be used and how well it works. Would recommend it's a great hobby.
