A full two feet of glorious, burly, grain-selected wood 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 bÌÄÕÌâå¢tard) 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: Our very own woodworking woodsmaiden has been nurturing her passion for gorgeous wood grains since she was six years old. Every Mara Metz piece starts with a painstaking selection process to be sure that the shape, grain, and nature of the raw wood is exactly suited to the size, shape, and function of the finished piece. Thoughtfully hand-crafted right here in Minneapolis from locally-sourced hardwoods (reclaimed when possible), the resulting exquisite, richly tactile woodenware is lovingly finished with Mara's own food-safe oil and beeswax blend. A simple treatment to let the natural beauty of the wood shine for generations to come.
Take Care: 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.
