I have a client who is dying for one of my blocks. However, he only wants one if I can match his decor which is primarily grey and white. From my understanding pickling and staining will render the board unusable for food use. Anyone have ideas they could share that may work?

Even if there is a way, it probably won’t hold up to use and washing. Personally, I would suggest woods that complement his color scheme than try to blend in with it. And if he is that particular, you’ll probably never make him happy anyway so might not be worth the hassle.

Check out bell forest I think I seen some exotics on there that were grayish. Have the customer look at it. But like lazy said that seems like alot of trouble. I’d get money up front lol

Make one out of bloodwood or purpleheart and tell him that’s the “pop” piece. Sometimes the best way to “match” décor is to not look like you are trying to match.
