CheeseBoard ~ Cake Platter ~ Candle Pedestal
I had a bakery custom order one of these & decides create several they are so cool. These are not just hacked out with a chainsaw, I actually strapped the walnut log upright to my mill for a super flat bandsawn crosscut slice. Then after 30 days in my dehumidification kiln, sanded the piece from 24 grit to 220 before applying the foodsafe “butcherblock” finish.

Kinda looks like a huge steak. Very unique to see sapwood and heartwood used like this. Looks great.

Have your say...
