About the maker: If we can dream it, Dennis (the kind + brilliant old-school woodworking mastermind behind August Fischer) can build it. Many of his handcrafted pieces are made just for us from off cuts and scraps that he rescues from the kindling pile, or from hand-selected locally and sustainably sourced hardwoods. He works with Oak, Cherry, Maple, and Butternut (among others) and takes special care to pick the "prettiest" pieces. To Dennis, the "pretty" ones are those that show the character of the tree, the grain, the knots, the history of its life. Dennis loves history. And a good story. Did you know that the beautiful maple hardwood he uses to make Anna's special Foundry candle holders is the same kind used in the first-ever skateboard decks? It's true! Everyone needs a Dennis. Luckily, we've got one.
Take Care: Finished by hand with Dennis' custom food-safe blend of mineral oil + beeswax, these are built to last. Occasionally flip which side you use to prevent cupping and avoid submerging in water. Occasionally recondition the wood with your preferred food-safe wood conditioner (we swear by Old Mill's All Natural Beeswax and Mineral Oil Wood Polish, available right here at The Foundry), being sure to allow enough time for the wood to absorb the oil before its next use.
