Distressed White cutting board, this board was roughened, distressed on the top then sanded so it feels "smooth" although rough texture, to the touch. This board is unique with it's teardrop shape which adds even more character to it!!
Birch, a natural growing tree in the Okanagan, has a beautifully rich colour along with a gorgeous grain that is unique to it as you can see in the photo's! You won't be disappointed!!
The top side was prepped and coated with Canadian-made Fusion Mineral Paint which has no toxic fillers and is a ZERO VOC product. Once cured, it was distressed to give it a lovely worn look as if it has served numerous holiday and family gatherings and to instill the cherished memory of "headin' home"
The bottom side has left with a natural finish for cutting or prepping food and has been prepped smooth as silk, larger natural cracks or knot holes, if present, were sealed with a vegetable-based resin, soaked in all-natural food-safe Canadian made Hemp Oil, allowed to set, burnished with ultrafine grit to prep for use.
Beautiful way to display for holidays, use as a serving board, or serve up a wonderful spread of mixed goodies on it as a charcuterie board or food platter.
Birch wood is well suited to be used as a cutting/food prep board or is equally at home serving up Charcuterie plates of soft cheese, veggies, and prepared cold cuts. If serving food on the "painted" side it is recommended to use parchment paper for ease of cleanup and if concerned about the painted surface.
We worked hard to replicate the handcrafted look and feel of this very special board by trying not to overwork the shape and finish working with and around the natural blemish's or defects to try to keep it looking like a board that came out of a handcrafted workshop. This unique board will be equally at home in an ultra-chic penthouse, or a small apartment multipurpose decor, all way to a rustic cabin overlooking a wilderness lake.
Natural cupping and fine cracks are perfectly normal with any type of wood board and will not affect the integrity of the board and could enhance the authentic look. Make sure and pick up a Crawford Creek Board Butter with your order to help keep your gorgeous new board in top-notch condition!
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFO:
Board Safety: As with any painted surface we don't recommend placing any food in direct contact with any painted surface, should you decide to serve on the painted side, simply place parchment paper down first and the food on top plus much easier to clean up afterward.
