Beautifully handcrafted and illustrated with the head and tail of a snapper (or is it two?), this gorgeously grained oak serving board from Scottish Oak will be a talking point at all your gatherings.
Present a whole salmon or other fish, or load it up with cheeses, artisan breads, canapés, crudités or a pot of home-made fish paté with all its accompaniments – whatever you choose to serve is sure to be set off to perfection. And, of course, if you’re not in the mood for fish, just flip it over and it’ll double up as a plain bread board, cheeseboard or cutting board.
Each durable, hand-finished serving board has a unique grain and is lovingly hand tied with a "Scottish Oak" branded ribbon and swing tag. The timber is harvested for Just Slate by Scottish Wood, a dynamic not-for-profit organisation who are dedicated to ensuring the future of Scottish woodlands, particularly in the Kingdom of Fife, improving the environment and rural access, and boosting local economies by encouraging artisan trades. They also support the woodwork departments of schools in Fife, so that pupils can gain skills and experience working with native hardwood timber.
About Just Slate
The award-winning Just Slate Company was founded in 1992 with a few simple products and a strong commitment to marry contemporary styling to the natural character of the materials they use. Throughout the years the one thing that has remained the same is that dedication to combine desirable style with natural materials – it’s at the heart of everything they do, and today they are the UK’s largest slate homeware producers.
Famously strong, heavy and durable, oak (or Quercus, to give it its Latin name) is revered in British culture because of its associations with longevity, steadfastness and toughness. A deciduous hardwood, it is naturally quite pale in colour with a prominent grain and, although it’s renowned for construction in houses and boat-building, its anti-fungal properties make it ideal for use in our kitchens and dining rooms.
(The natural anti-bacterial properties of hardwood cutting surfaces have been proven after extensive testing in American university research labs, notably Dean O. Cliver and his team at the Food Research Institute of Wisconsin-Madison University.) It’s recommended that wooden boards should be stacked on their long sides, especially when drying, so that any residual damp cannot ‘track’ up the grain and cause expansion which may eventually encourage the board to split.
