Stunning Australian Spotted Gum serving platter
Please note: SOLD OUT - more coming soon! Due February 2019.
Accented with twisted wrought iron or antique pewter handles, these generously proportioned Tavern serving platters certainly take centre stage on the table.
Spotted Gum is a timber you won't find in everyday use. It's one of the more expensive Australian timbers, often in high demand by timber artists and custom furniture builders. It is an incredibly hard and dense timber with highly variable, vibrant colouring and varied grain pattern. The colours vary from light caramel browns through to deep red-browns.
A serving platform for cheeses, appetizers, antipasto, tapas, cupcakes, deserts or even chocolates. Great as a share platter of any nature or presenting a breakfast of croissants and coffee.
The twisted handles add a dramatic medieval feel. At home in a tavern, castle, provincial farmhouse or would also be lovely as a rustic accent in modern setting!
Handcrafted of FSC-certified Spotted Gum and sanded to a satin smooth finish these platters make a statement on any occasion. Finished in a two coats of organic virgin jojoba oil to protect them from drying out and to produce a beautiful shine.

|Timber||Spotted Gum Timber * Australian Forestry Standard Certified - Full Chain of Custody * Victorian Timber|
|Handles||Wrought Iron Effect or Pewter Effect (Iron base metal)|
|Finish||Hand Sanded * 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
