If you've ever spilled a drink or a meal on your couch, you will immediately recognize the usefulness of this couch tray!
We created this couch tray in order to provide a large stable area for your coffee cup, whiskey, dinner plate or even puzzle pieces, toys and playing cards. Our goal was to create something beautiful, useful, and ethically made.
We make these to order, custom built based on the depth of your couch cushion. The top surface is 14.5 inches wide. Please provide the depth of your couch seat, from the front edge to the start of the back cushion. The front drop is 5".

:: How we make it ::
Once we have your couch depth measurement, we make it on demand, custom built for your exact couch.
We start with locally sourced, native species hardwood trees, kiln-dried and milled into rough boards. We re-saw these rough boards to approximate 3" wide strips which are planed, jointed and then laminated with water resistant, formaldehyde-free wood glue, alternating the grain direction of each strip in order to minimize wood movement and maximize strength. Once we have a large panel, we cross-cut it into two panels (the top and the front drop). We then create the final shape using what is called an edge lamination.
All surfaces are then sanded to a silky smooth 180 before receiving three coats of our environmentally-friendly zero-VOC hard wax oil finish. Our Osmo Hard Wax Oil finish is made of organic resins, waxes and oils, and works by penetrating into the wood fibres, strengthening them while leaving the natural beauty of the wood to shine. It doesn't sit on the surface like varnish or lacquer and therefore isn't prone to clouding or chipping - and most importantly it's completely safe for you and your family - this stuff is certified in Europe for use on children's toys! A breeze to clean and maintain, simply clean with a damp cloth and wipe dry.
Our couch trays do not use any metal hardware - they are made using traditional furniture joinery techniques. The inside is finished as completely as the outside and will not mar your couch in any way.
