A beautiful set of coasters made to be used daily adding a wonderful natural touch to any kitchen or living room. Whether you use it daily at your dinner table, or bring it out just for special occasions, its sure to get a conversation started!
These puzzle coasters are crafted from Claro walnut from Oregon and Wenge from West Africa. The wenge strip has been carefully inlayed into the coasters, giving the striking curved line running through the entire length of the set of coasters. If you look carefully you can see that these coasters were cut from a single piece of wood and if aligned correctly will produce a linked pattern!
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 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.
