Large oak serving board with curved handle made from ash. Oiled. 3322 6583
A unique piece hand-made in Quorn from timber sourced as locally as possible. European oak and English ash.
830mm long, 195mm wide, oak base is 15mm thick. The curved ash handle is 270mm high. Ash legs at each end hold the base about 12mm up, as the oak has warped slightly as it dried. It now has a cupped shape, which actually makes it better for carrying things. The oak also has a couple of knots and pronounced grain, which is very tactile.
Originally designed to carry drinks and snacks to the garden, where it could also be used as a cutting board, but found that the wine bottle made it lop sided to carry. We are now using a large trug!
