What is Soban?

They are small tray-like tables, usually wooden, used in Korea for carrying food and as individual dining tables. They are generally made of walnut, pine or ginko wood, often sourced from the carpenter's local area.

Soban are generally fairly small, due to the historical custom of family members and guests each having their own individual table.
