This board is handcrafted from a local cherry wood. This tree had been attacked by bugs over the previous years causing unrecoverable damage to the truck. We got the call to come and remove it, but we were a bit suspicous if any of the wood could be salvaged. But to our suprise it has wonderful patterns and a deep rich cherry color!
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 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.
