Large Cutting + Serving Board by Studio Inko - Bird's Eye Maple
Please note that each bread board is crafted from a unique piece of wood so no two boards will be the same. The photo of the board is a reference photo only, actual board appearance will vary. Due to the handmade nature of each board, there may be slight variations or imperfections that make each piece beautifully unique. The board you receive may vary in wood hues, grain, and figure.
Handcrafted and hand-finished out of solid Bird's Eye Maple, this sculptural wood cutting + serving board was made to fit perfectly into the contemporary home. The beautiful colors and patterns of the wood grain make this board the ideal serving surface for cheeses or hors d'oeuvres, while the sturdy composition of the hardwood makes it ideal as a surface to cut bread or prepare dinner ingredients.
The board features a hanging hole for convenient display and storage. Because no wood piece is the same, every board will have its own unique wood grain and patterns.
Each board is carefully selected, cut, smoothed, carved, and finished with mineral oil and beeswax before inlaying the raw brass logo - an hours-long process that is done completely by hand. Over time, the brass logo inlay will develop a lovely patina along with the wood board surface, a reminder of all the wonderful meals prepared and enjoyed with family and friends.
All the wood used is personally hand-selected and sourced by Teplitz from small US-based lumberyards, the majority coming from local millworkers around the San Francisco Bay Area, where her studio is based, and the Pacific Northwest. Each finished piece uses the natural color of the wood with no dyes or stains.
