Beautiful, hand sanded, Australian hardwood chopping board
Sometimes birthdays are hard. What do you get someone who has "everything"? You know they are into reading their horoscopes and love everything about the zodiac. Then how about a chopping board with their star sign constellation, date of birth and the co-ordinates of their birth?
Our boards are multi purpose - One side has beautiful personalised laser engraving - a stunning statement in any kitchen. When the cooking starts, they will shine as functional pieces. Made from tough red gum, they can be used daily as a chopping board or as a cheese platter on other occasions.
* NATURAL - Your board has been produced without using toxic glues
* LOCAL - We source our Redgum 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
- 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 chopping 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 Timber * Australian Forestry Standard Certified - Full Chain of Custody * Victorian Timber|
|Finish||Hand Sanded * Organic Beeswax and 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.
