Rainbow Heart Cutting /Serving Board. Thank you so much for your support. Limited Quantities available!!
Heart Cutting Board handcrafted from Rainbow Poplar wood was made to beautifully prep and display all types of wonderful treats for that someone special! This board is softer and lighter than the Maple which makes it ideal for individual serving boards that can easily be carried around.
This board was handcrafted using Rainbow 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 a darker cream color, sometimes with a golden hue, with streaks of green, brown and other colours. The heartwood tends to be a darker brownish colour.
The term “Rainbow Poplar” does not refer to a separate wood species, but rather, is a designation of Yellow Poplar that has been mineral stained. The resulting mineral stained wood, exhibits a variety of colors ranging from green, purple, black, red, etc. It is this distinct variety of colors that turns an otherwise ordinary piece of Poplar into the intriguing Rainbow Poplar. The precise cause of these streaks and discolored wood produced in certain trees is not fully understood but is still a 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.
This board was roughened, distressed on the top, then sanded so it feels "smooth" (although rough texture), to the touch. The white 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 was 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.
Rainbow Poplar wood is a hardwood but a softer one which is well suited to be used as a prep/serving 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 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. 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 is perfectly normal with any type of wood board and will not affect the integrity of the board and could enhance the authentic look.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFO: Board Safety: As with any painted surface we don't recommend to place 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 afterwards.
