We had a special request for a live edge board, so John made a few for us. A lot of extra work he said, so priced a bit higher than regular boards the same size. Like all his work, unique and beautiful. These are 10 by 12 inches. A nice size to display a small charcuterie, or to use in your kitchen. We do have other sizes of boards in stock, but this is the only live edge one.
This J. Wentworth board is made from solid hardwood, mostly from local, Maine forests. The primary woods used are sugar maple, cherry, yellow birch, red oak and walnut. There are occasionally strips of exotic, accent woods such and wenge and padouk. Many of the boards are selected because of their beauty and figure. Tiger maple and flame birch have unusual grain patterns that are carefully selected and included.
John Wentworth grew up in the furniture making business, in 1947 his family started Moosehead Furniture, the largest privately owned furniture factory in New England. In his workshop overlooking Lake Hebron, John continues to make custom pieces and cabinetry as well as repair classic Moosehead furniture.
Clean with a rag dampened with warm water. Do not use soap or harsh chemicals, soak in water or put into the dishwasher, this will ruin the finish.
Wood needs to be oiled periodically not just to maintain its luster, but to keep it protected. To refresh the finish you may use a cutting board oil.
