A very old piece of oak that was rescued from a very old and damaged piece of furniture that had been dumped in a skip. Carefully and pleasingly reinforced with walnut bow tie inlays and an antique bronze epoxy filling for a removed rotten corner and finished with many coats of hard wax oil.
This is an oak serving board, a platter board, some people call them charcuterie boards. This is not a chopping board, it's far too nice for that. Best used as a cheese board, or for serving wine, champagne or prosecco or any other party occasion where a bit of style is required.
It is made from very old oak and is a lighter brown hue with darker walnut bow tie inlays to support and make the natural crack in the wood stand out. One corner had been rotten and damaged before I got it and had to be removed. It was filled with antique bronze tinted epoxy to strengthen and add character.
The lengthy finishing process involved a lot of sanding to a high grit and a number of coats of Osmo Polyx oil. This product would benefit from yearly re waxing. The Osmo we use is product no 3062.
The board is 42.5cm x 20cm. I've included an image with a bottle of wine for scale purposes. It is a very tactile smooth board with a reasonable weight being made of oak.
This is a one of a kind unique board made from very old oak. The original shelving and small chest of drawers were approximately 80 years old. Such a shame not to rescue it all and bring some of it back to life.
This is the only board exactly like this one in the whole world.
