August Fischer & Co. Salvaged Wood Baguette Board - 24"

Article number: AF-BAGUETTE-BOARD
Availability: In stock (1)
A full two feet of glorious, burly, diamond-hard maple make this baguette board the rock star of cocktail hour snack spreads. Perfect for serving cut rounds (we love to stock the tray with little dishes of olives and capers or radishes and butter to accompany the bâtard) or for slicing directly on at the table, this hand-made board is an ideal friend for consummate entertainers. We've also used it to anchor low-profile centerpieces for impromptu dinner parties—it makes a few single stems in low bud vases look like a big deal. Roughly 24"x4 1/2"

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 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. Avoid submerging in water and 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.
