Solid Maple & Blue Resin River Cheese, Cake or Serving Board
The feature central river is made from deep layers of colour created from blues, reds and golds. The more you look the more you see the complexity of the colours used to produce this beautiful board.
Perfect as a unique gift for the cake, cheese or charcuterie lover in your life.
Due to the characteristics of the wood, each piece is unique and sizes vary: approximate sizes are 30 x 40. The boards are treated with a food safe wax oil.
Larger table centrepiece boards are also available, or if you’d like a different size or colour, please get in touch.
Not dishwasher safe, wipe clean after use & do not leave standing in water. The resin is tough but not indestructible, so do not cut directly onto the resin using metal blades (I make lovely wooden cake knives if you would like to do that!). It can be scratched, but it is possible to re-finish these boards and remove scratches if this happens. Don’t put hot items (e.g. Pans) onto the boards as it is possible to damage the finish and the resin.
Whenever possible in Lifetimber products I use second life timber that has had a previous life as something else, is reclaimed or salvaged or often was waste or offcuts from another project or woodworker. Most of the wood that I use is reclaimed or offcut hardwoods that are naturally slow growing. This timber is always beautiful and often has character that means it was hard for others to use. I always work with the natural beauty of the wood, highlighting, celebrating and enhancing the natural flaws, knots and patina.
The core philosophy of Lifetimber’s process is to minimise waste: I try to make use of every ounce of wood that comes into my workshop, even the sawdust! By considering a Lifetimber product, you will be helping rescue gorgeous wood from an ignominious end.
Obviously, wood is a natural product and Lifetimber celebrates that: if you are looking for conformity, repeatability and laser cut precision then you are probably looking at the wrong product…. but you have read this far! I therefore encourage you to consider a unique Lifetimber product for all the beauty and joy that it will bring.
If you like what you see and have read, but are after a bespoke commission or customised product, then please get in contact with your requirements and I will see what I can do!
