Beautiful, hand sanded Australian hardwood chopping boardNot just any chopping board - a slab of 3cm thick Australian hardwood. Redgum is one of the toughest timbers with a hardness rating of 12 (Janka Rating). Spotted gum is even harder. To put that into perspective compared to other timber, it is 2.5 times harder than Vic Ash, two times as hard as most standard bamboos boards. If cared for, these boards could be handed down to through the generations - they really are that good.
This design is made just for you. The 'Monogram' is created from the first two letters of the persons name. No two boards will ever be the same. It's like having a designer or stylist come up with a personal logo.
This board would make a great gift for anyone who loves cooking or fancies themselves a master chef.
* NATURAL - Your board has been produced without using toxic glues
* LOCAL - We source our timber chopping boards locally. They are made here in Victoria.
* CRAFTSMANSHIP - Edges and corners are routed to create a board that is a joy handle.
* HAND FINISHED - Your board has been hand sanded to a satin smooth finish.
* QUALITY - Two coats of timber conditioner are applied to your board prior to shipping.
Quality engraving takes time. Rather than rush your job through the laser as fast as possible, we allow the laser to work slowly to produce a superior engraving. No 'Overburn' (that hazy burn you see around the edge of the design on cheaper items).
Your board includes:
- Three lines of personalisation (Brand, Name & Title)
- Digital Proof
- Finished with our organic timber conditioner - beeswax, coconut oil and jojoba oil
- Printed care instructions
Yarra Valley Maker is committed to producing unique, practical boards that can double as a
beautiful serving platter or cheese board. Our obligation to the
environment means that we source wood that is durable and, if well cared
for could be handed down from generation to generation.
This design not quite what you are looking for? Want something even more personalised. We have other designs and would love to work with you to to make something really special.
Note: Timber is a natural material. As such it has variations in colour, tone, knots, etc. Each piece is different - a natural work of art. The item you receive will be similar to the photos, but not identical.
|Timber||Redgum or Spotted Gum Australian Hardwood * Australian Forestry Standard Certified - Full Chain of Custody * Victorian Timber|
|Finish||Organic Jojoba Timber Conditioner|
|Natural Variation||Note: Timber has natural variation in grain and colour . The laser reacts to grain and resins differently and produces variation in colouring to some degree. This adds to the charm and uniqueness of each and every item. That makes each board an individual work art. Photos of the item show the grain and variation expected in redgum.|
Our Redgum and Spotted Gum Boards are custom made for Yarra Valley Maker. They are made from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council), supply chain certified, timber grown here in Victoria.
These lovely Redgum and Spotted Gum boards are manufactured by a team of master joiners in a small factory in Bayswater, Victoria. The guys use Australian made, non toxic, water based adhesive (which is FDA approved for food contact) to construct our boards. Blocks of 30mm timber are laminated together under high pressure using state of the art presses.
Once they come to Yarra Valley Maker they are treated like fine furniture. They are hand sanded with up to 4 grades of sandpaper to produce the silky smooth finish we are renowned for. Once sanded they are gently brushed down to remove sanding dust and massaged with two coats of organic Jojoba oil and then stored waiting to be lasered on demand to your requirements. Once out of the laser they are hand finished with Jojoba oil. The board is rested for 12+ hours to allow maximum absorption before a second treatment is added. 12+ hours after that they are hand polished for final presentation.
A final inspection is done prior to wrapping and packaging for transport
