The word barn comes from the Old English bere, for barley (or grain in general), and aern, for a storage place—thus, a storehouse for barley.  In historical times, the barn was to be distinguished from the granary, which was used to store thresed grain or cut off ears. Think of it as the barn stored the grain and the thressing floor processed the grain. 

Modern barns evolved from grain storage to include a stable, from Latin stabulum ‘stall, fold, aviary’ (literally "a standing place where cattle are kept in place and position,").

Barns were constructed from the most readily available materials (wood) and from the materials that were most workable by the men of the community (wood).  Therefore, it is estimated that over 900,000 wooden barns were constructed in the United States between 1800 and today.   Of course barns today are steel structures, but reclaiming the wood of the 900,000 barns for the purpose of reclaimed purpose and celebration of the history of the tree and region is the purpose of this tray. 

This reclaimed barn wood serving tray is a beautiful piece and has been reclaimed from old barns in the south, sanded, and stained to provide a beautiful presentation of the original wood grains.   This unique item is 100% made from reclaimed barnwood.   This handmade item is a great gift for newlyweds or a unique addition to any homes serving or barware collection.
