Ever wonder what we mean when we refer to a board as "reclaimed"? Reclaiming is the process of taking something old, and repurposing it in to something new and beautiful. We have found this to be an amazing way to create our personalized line of cutting and charcuterie boards!
Many of our past boards are single solid pieces of wood that served a different purpose in a past life, that have been sanded or planed down to an appropriate size, BUT our new line of boards utilizes smaller pieces combined together! Many of these pieces come from flooring, siding, crating, and shelving that have been removed from their original locations because they are no longer functional in their original form. Some of our favorite pieces are even made from the renovation and reconstruction of our own 1905 farm house.
We start with gathering a pile of wood. The more varied the sources, the more incredible our boards will look!
Wood is then prepared by ripping each to both remove any unusable areas of damage and to make them an appropriate size for the project.
For our cutting boards, we use 1 to 3 inch strips.
After boards are ripped to size, they are sorted by both width and color. We then select the boards that will look great together, and edge glue them with industrial wood glue
The boards are clamped together and glue allowed to dry for 48 hours.
Boards are then run through a planer to make them a uniform height. After planing, they are then sanded smooth
After sanding, a template is used to draw the desired shape on to the square boards, where they are cut, and then sanded once again. The edges are made smooth by using a hand held router. After edge routing, the boards are sanded once again.
