Kauri pine is certainly not a local wood to British Columbia, or even North America! This particular wood came all the way from New Zealand. We happened across a batch of this very unusual figured Kauri pine a few years back, and once we dried it, we were shocked to see the amazing color and patterns in this wood! Kauri pine is sought after for its smooth and even texture, with a great smell and spectacular grain when you get a figured piece. Bring a little piece of Kauri Pine home with you today!
The process of making these boards is long and complex, with many hours of work going into each one. The board is first selected from local maple slabs which have to be kiln dried and then seasoned so that the wood can stabilize. Once a piece is selected, any cracks or gaps are filled with black epoxy to seal the wood and prevent food from getting into any crevasses. At this point the board is hand planed and sanded to a smooth finish. A food safe tung oil/beeswax topcoat rubbed and buffed to a soft sheen. Just wipe with a damp cloth after use and dry, do not soak in water or use dishwasher to clean.
Please note this is an example piece only, you will receive a board made from the same batch of Kauri Pine. If you would like to preview the board you will receive please contact us.
