    It's a work of art! I'm keeping it on display when I'm not using it.

    I couldn’t have asked for a more beautiful, unique and well-made gift to give my dad for his 70th birthday than this multi-purpose tray. I sent the artist an image, she advised me on wood, and I received this in enough time to fall in love with it (and dream of getting one for myself) before giving it away. I know he will love it and receive loads of compliments during all the useful purposes it will serve.

    Starfish and Whale helped design this gift for a couple who make their own wine. It was that perfect, unique gift I couldn’t find elsewhere and it really impressed and touched the recipients. From start to unpacking, it was fun and easy to work with Starfish and Whale and they were communicative and patient with me along the way. I love that I have found a resource for quality gifts that supports a Made in USA company of hard-working, talented artists.

    A useable, unique item. This should be left out on display. I sent this as a housewarming gift. It was very well received. Most likely I will order from this artisan again. Any of their items will make a perfect wedding gift, housewarming gift or a gift for anyone living at the beach or a lake house.

    If you are looking for a meticulously created gem of a piece, Starfish & Whale is the right choice. Every detail, starting from wood selection is executed with the highest scrutiny and care. The artisan even sends pictures as your piece moves through various phases of production. I requested a custom size and wanted to make sure the stain did not pull red. We wanted the cooler tones of black walnut. She absolutely nailed it! We absolutely love our piece! We look forward to placing future orders as we would like to order additional boards with the unique inlay of stars and whales.
