This 14 by 6 by 1.5 inch thick cutting board/serving platter is made of swirling figured black walnut, salvaged from a local orchard that was being removed. It has been sealed and sanded smooth on all sides. All naturally occuring voids have been filled.

This platter features a complex background of turquoise, sodalite, pyrite and tusk shell stars, highlighted by an Abalone full moon. It is placed in the corner of the board, and is highlighted by the nearby graft line.

After being sanded, the board is treated with 3 coats of General Brand Food Safe Salad Bowl Finish. Final Sanding is with 400 grit, for a smooth, aesthetic finish. With appropriate care, it will last a lifetime!!! The salad bowl finish actually sets up in the wood, and seals the natural pigments. The back side is also expertly finished, and can be used for cutting and serving.

As with any wooden cutting/serving board, a quick rinse with water and mild dishsoap and hand drying is generally the best way to clean it. With repeated use, this finish requires occasional redressing with mineral oil (available at any drug store), or you can also rub it with beeswax, or a combination of the two. All woods are harvested locally by local tree trimmers, and would otherwise end up in the fireplace or landfill.

I welcome your questions, so please feel free to contact me!!
