Wood immersed in epoxy resin.
These unique one-of-a-kind river serving boards can add a little zest to your in-house Happy Hours or add conversation to your next gathering whether it be displayed as artwork or used as a serving tray or cutting board. Each board is unique and no two are alike.
The River and Ocean Boards can be utilized as a serving tray, charcuterie board, cutting board, or artwork. Multifunctional use as a cutting board on one side and the more attractive side as your serving board if you prefer. We recommend cutting on the wood section to help preserve the beauty of the resin.
If you decide to use it as a cutting board, we recommend creating a board with a good amount of wood to cut on. To help preserve the beauty of the River Board, we don’t recommended cutting on the epoxy resin.
The epoxy resin we use is BPA free and FDA certified food-safe. It is finished with a plant-based, food-safe oil wax to help protect and bring out the natural beauty of the wood.
The wood was carefully selected for it’s beauty and unique properties. Whenever possible, we use salvaged wood but we never use wood that had finish on it so we can guarantee the food safety of each board. Other wood that is purchased is carefully selected by hand and never purchased in bulk.
If you enjoy “Wabi-Sabi” aesthetic, these River Boards are perfect for you. Since they are handmade items, you can see our “hand”/imperfections in the final product.
NOTE: In traditional Japanese aesthetics, wabi-sabi is a world view centered on the acceptance of transience and imperfection. The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of appreciating beauty that is “imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete” in nature.
Custom River Boards take approximately 4-6 weeks before shipping depending on our schedule.
