Each species of wood has it's own distinctive color and/or grain patterns. I've been told that the different minerals in the soil that a tree is growing in can effect the color of the wood. I knocked out a couple of charcuterie boards this evening. The clear maple board has feet raising it off the table. #charcuterieboard #ambrosia #maple #cuttingboard #handmade Charcuterie board /cheese tray / grazing board / cutting board / serving tray #charcuterieboard #unique #handmade #displacedappalachian #turninggnome **UNIQUE - Please note that since each bowl is handcrafted, they will not look EXACTLY like the photos. The wood may be lighter or darker and can have different natural wood designs.
