WRITER'S BLOCK engraved on one edge of 8.5" x 6.5" x 3" black walnut board

Tongue-in-cheek tease, something anyone who writes has experienced, the WRITER'S BLOCK board should get a chuckle from the writer in your life or the writer in you. The three inch thickness of the board makes it "blockier" than other boards in our shop. We have used it here as a pedestal to display a bird candle. It could as easily be used as a paperweight to hold down that great American novel-in-progress, or to elevate an element in a tablescape, or...let your imagination run wild.

All of our boards are made from reclaimed hardwoods, sourced locally and air dried for one year per inch of thickness. Air drying is preferable to kiln drying for maintaining quality. Should you choose to use it as a cutting surface, it will take on the patina of age, with small nicks and scratches adding character. Simply hand wash with soapy water (do not submerge) and treat every so often with mineral oil (available at most drug stores).

Convo us with your special requirements and we will go out of our way to ensure that you will enjoy your piece of "Art From the Forest".
