Cut and carved from a single piece of solid maple, this handcrafted bread board is fine enough for serving up crusty loaves of bread or elegant charcuterie, but durable enough for daily use.

Story

Cut and carved by hand from a single piece of solid maple, this handsome bread board is sanded seven times and soaked in three different oil baths for a smooth, long-lasting finish. The long, rectangular shape is perfectly suited to serving up crusty loaves of bread, but equally at home with charcuterie and cheese. The gently rounded corners, beveled edges, and extended handle all speak to meticulous attention to detail. A final coating of mineral oil and propolis (also known as “bee glue”) is applied to lightly seal the wood. Maker Allison Samuels makes each piece herself from her studio in New York, with a focus on minimalist design and impeccable craftsmanship. Fine enough for hosting and durable enough for daily use, it’s an invaluable piece in any kitchen.

Care
  • Apply an even coat of food-safe oil with a clean cotton cloth once a month, or whenever the wood feels dry. Allow the oil to fully penetrate the wood’s fibers overnight, wiping off any excess oil and leaving to dry standing on edge.
  • With use, your board will lose its initial “softness,” which is easily restored by giving it a quick scuff sand with 320 grit sandpaper. Be sure to sand along the direction of the grain. Wipe away dust before applying an even coat of oil, and let this soak into the fibers for about 15 minutes before sanding with 400 grit wet-dry sandpaper to buff the raised grain. Let this dry overnight, and the following day apply a very thin coat of oil, which should be left to air dry for a day at least before using as normal.
  • Use gentle soaps & water to clean, and towel/air dry. Never leave your wood to soak in water, and never put in the dishwasher.
