Cedar Serving or Chopping Board – medium


A medium size serving platter that is ideal for serving food in style.

These charred black Yakisugi serving platters make your food, and kitchen, look striking! Use them to serve cheeses, fruit, charcuterie, cakes, nuts, sushi… they are incredibly versatile. The intense black colour of the boards is a great contrasting backdrop to any food, enhancing the colours of both, and making your food look delicious. They are a perfect addition to any table, whether you are entertaining friends, celebrating a special occasion or simply want to serve your favourite snacks with style.

These platters are handmade from locally salvaged solid cedar. The colour is a result of Yakisugi or charring. Yakisugi is a 16th century Japanese technique that involves using only fire to colour, seal and preserve hard woods. Charring the wood is followed by cooling, combing, sanding and cleaning. The final part of the making is coating the platter with a natural oil. What results has a new form, texture and feel, smell and presence. It really is a magical process!

Yakisugi results in a resilient surface, and it is also an entirely natural process- no dyes, glues or chemicals are used! Because we use salvaged wood, we are reducing waste and giving a new life to materials that otherwise would be discarded. Not only useful and beautiful but also kind to the environment!

When not in use, these platters are a stunning sensory piece of home decor, displayed hung on the wall, or on a kitchen surface.

A great gift for all food lovers!
