Live-edge, large, Japanese maple charcuterie board with juice grove
Tray measures about 16” in diameter and is ¾” thick.
A juice groove surrounds the whole tray (see photos).
Under the edge of each protrusion a finger pocket is carved out (see photos) so that it is easy to pick up the board from any angle.
All natural stress cracks/checks or holes from insects or soft bark inclusions have been cleaned out and filled with black epoxy resin to improve stability and to prevent food particles from lodging there.
Finished with 3 coats of in-the-wood, food-safe polymerised tung oil and is silky smooth.
The wood came from a downed Japanese maple tree in Newton, MA.
