This Cutting Board / serving tray is made from Black Walnut that grew right here at BlackWater. I had to clear a lot of trees to build our home here - a few of them Walnut. A few logs went to the sawmill, but this piece and many others went to the firewood stack. I cut a thick slab with my chain saw, and kiln and air dried it for 2 years.

The exquisite grain and figure made it worth all the work! I cut off the bark and sapwood keeping the original shape of the piece as it came from the tree. I planed it down to 3/4", sanded it for several hours, and seasoned it well with the finest butcher block oil on both sides. You can use one side for cutting and prep, and save the other side for serving!

The approximate dimensions are 12" x 21" (longest points). There are a few cracks and holes (naturally), but these will not affect the performance or longevity of the piece. It should be hand washed and dried, and occasionally re-seasoned with a quality mineral oil.

Look for more great items from Blackwater Workshops! Most of the wood I use has grown right here at home - Cherry, Ash, Walnut, Hackberry, Cedar, and more. Birdhouses, bird feeders, boxes, shelves, and whatever other crazy ideas pop into my head! Enjoy!
