We, here at Tribal Spirit are serious wood freaks….we are extremely attached to wood……wood carries a history, a life that lives on and shares it’s experience after it passes on. Wasting a piece of wood is something we try not to do.
While steaming and bending wood for our hand drums, any piece with a knot or lots of grain/figure we have to put aside because it will not steam. Or rather it will not bend….the wood will split and break. We inevitably end up with pile of beautiful Ash wood we don’t quite know what to do with….SO time to make some cutting boards!!! The grain is very pretty, carefully sanded and finished with 2 coats of Bear Grease.
We made up two sizes…cheese board sized at approx 5 1/2″ x 8 1/2″ and a Veggie board size approx 8 1/2″ x 12″.
