One of our favorites for entertaining and gifting! This maple wood board from Maple Leaf Designs in Texas. To get the deep rich color they fire the board in the kiln until it reaches a deep walnut brown coloring and finished off with butcher block conditioner. By darkening this thermal ash board you can lay everything directly down on the board then simply wash it away at the end of the night keeping it as functional as it is beautiful. Finished off with the stamped "Gather with family and friends" sentiment and leather handle. This will be something cherished for years to come!
