Parts and Supplies:
Dry cloth

Coffee is our treat in the morning hours. But have you notice that either the sugar falls all over the counter, or coffee beaker drips coffee, or the coffee cups are to full. Well some of this is  all over. The solution is a coffee tray, we received one for Christmas. It was perfect made of good quality wood with handles and it worked perfectly to keep all our condiments together. But it wasn't sealed, the raw wood would not have survived and we decided to make it stronger and sealed to protect the tray for many more year of service. 

These post shows the five parts to prepare this tray for many year of coffee service. This post shows the seven steps to wash and prepare the wood tray. 

Step 1: Fig.1 shows the bottom of the wood tray being washed in the kitchen sink. Water was used to remove all the coffee and sugar stains from the surface of the tray.
Step 2: Fig.2 shows the top of the wood tray being washed.

Step 5: Fig.5 shows a dry paper towel will be used to hold the coffee tray until all the moisture is dried from it. The next step will be to stain and apply a light sealer to the tray.
