Sand Trays are designed specifically for therapists and sand tray work.

preferences of users. Aesthetics, craftsmanship, and affordability continue to
drive the construction process. Users have inspired all the NEW items
incorporated into the product line.
Aspen Sand trays are constructed of wood. The corners
of the trays are mitered, splined and glued. They

trays are sealed in several coats of epoxy and are
water resistant. A durable polyurethane finish is
applied to outside surfaces. Dimensions approximate the
Jungian standard, while still allowing for shipping.

of miniatures at a child's eye level. The "Refrigerator" is
our largest set of shelves. It has been constructed to meet therapists
specific requirements. Because of its size, it is currently limited to

specifically designed for the round tray. The 4 foot round
group tray is popular in schools. It is available with
fixed or rolling stands. Because of its size and weight
