The handles on these boards are all hand carved, all are unique and adapted to the wood structure. All have exceptional hard to find figured grain and color.
Most of the boards with hand carved handles will be figured walnut but occasionaliy I will post a cherry, Mesquite or ambrosia maple board.
Figured crotch walnut is beautiful and rare, making it very hard to find beautiful pieces. Not to be confused with wood grain, wood figure is the term that is used to describe the unique markings and patterns that appear on the surface of the wood, others say that a boards figure refers to the ability of the woods grain to catch and reflect light. Some have lovely staggers, almost flame like figure.
All of these boards are custom made and will vary in size, color, figure and grain, no two boards will be alike. Because of all of the figured crotch Walnut grain, these boards are susceptible to some warping based on weather, soaking up moisture or water, etc. All boards I sell will be totally flat on both sides when shipped to you.
Cherry wood is light cherry color and ambrosia maple is a cream color with black and brown streaking.
These are beautiful all around board for the kitchen, great for entertaining with friends for serving your favorite cheeses, meats and fruits or use it daily in the kitchen or just hanging on your kitchen wall! All of these re perfect for charcuterie, or serving board, cutting board, pizza board, etc.

Wood Care & Maintenance
All trays, kitchen accessories, wood accessories - cutting boards, charcuterie board, etc., are finished with Michael’s Wood Conditioner. It is a 100% food safe oil and 100% food safe beeswax mixture, all 100% pure natural ingredients. The Wood Conditioner will penetrate the wood and revive the surface as well as create a moisture barrier. Allow the Wood Conditioner, mineral oil or Walrus oil to penetrate through the wood fibers, overnight is best, wipe off any access with a cotton cloth.
When your wood seems to have lost it’s luster from normal use and the dry air of household temperatures, apply an even coat of Michael’s Wood Conditioner, mineral oil or Walrus Oil to all surfaces.
• Boards that contain resin are not cutting boards, do not cut on the resin. Use as a charcuterie board.
• DO NOT place any wood items in the dishwasher, DO NOT allow moisture of any kind on wood for a long period of time.
• DO NOT allow moisture to be trapped between the surface of your wood and the counter.
• DO NOT use a steel brush or scraper on the wood surface. Use 320 grit sandpaper to remove any dried food on surface.
• Wood Conditioner, mineral oil or Walrus oil will NOT remove food odors or food stains. Once food odors are in the wood they are very hard to impossible to remove. Surface stains can most often be removed depending on the type of stain. The process to do this can be found on my website.
• Knife marks cannot be removed, when cutting on your board, distribute your cutting over the entire surface so that your board will wear evenly.
• Store your handcrafted wood items in a clean, dry place away from heat such as stovetops and food products.
• If the wood gets wet, dry the surface immediately with a clean towel. Then allow the wood to air dry upright. Do not stack or lean wood against another surface while drying. Do not leave in standing water, this can cause the wood to warp, split and can cause discoloration. After drying apply Wood Conditioner.
• Apply a liberal coat of Wood Conditioner, mineral oil or Walrus oil frequently using a lint free cloth in the direction of the wood grain. Allow to penetrate the wood, overnight is best, wipe off any access with a cloth. DO NOT use vegetable oil, olive oils, etc., they will turn rancid quickly and permeate your wood with an unpleasant odor.
