Live-edge, large, oak charcuterie board with two integral handles
- Tray measures about 24" long x 8"-9½" wide x ¾” thick x 4" high (at the handles).
- Each handle was carved from an outside branch of a three branch crotch. Under each handle a finger pocket is carved out (see photos) to make it easier to pick up the board from a flat surface.
- 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 white oak tree in the Needham, MA, area. It is a cross-section of a crotch with three branches
