Union Jack Cutting Board: Handcrafted from Rainbow Poplar
This one of a kind Union Jack Cutting Board was roughened then a Union Jack Flag material was bonded to the surface. Once set up three more additional layers of Vegetable based resin were applied to seal in the flag. Once cured, it was handcrafted to give it a lovely worn look.
The bottom side was left with a natural finish for cutting or prepping food. 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 and burnished with ultrafine grit to prep for use.
This board was handcrafted using Poplar wood a very versatile and sustainable wood. It is a hardwood but one of the softer ones which would make it more suitable for a prep board for softer food like cheese or veggies and would be a wonderful small serving board. These boards were crafted both from the sapwood and heartwood of the tree so they will vary in colour. Sapwood color is mainly an off-white cream color, sometimes with a golden hue. The heartwood tends to be a darker brownish colour.
Poplar 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.
We worked hard to replicate the handcrafted look and feel of this very special board by trying not to over work 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.
Smooth, natural side is finished with all natural Hemp Oil and is safe for food contact.
