The buffet is handcrafted from beams of wormy chestnut salvaged from dismantled barns and homes of the southern Appalachians. Tiny holes bored by insects are common in the milled lumber of American chestnut, a tree decimated by an imported fungus a century ago.
In addition to a depression cut to fit a pint of Patron, the Tequila Buffet comes with:
- cutting board
- shot glasses
- salt bowls
- paring knife
- dedicated notches to stash tequila’s little helpers: lime and salt
