HAND-CARVED BURL WOOD OVAL PLATTER

There are countless uses for these hand-carved wooden oval platters: serving appetizers or cheese and crackers, as side salad or bread plates, or even beneath a beloved potted plant. They make a wonderful addition to your home or cabin and complement every type of decor. The raw materials come from stumps and burls in the roots of trees left by logging operations. What was once destroyed as “waste by-products” is now removed by hardy teams along the mountain slopes and transported to carving villages. After careful cleaning and grading, each gnarled stump is transformed by a skilled carver into the gorgeous platter you see here. No two are alike! Each piece is fashioned from a single piece of wood.

These platters are sourced from global craftsmen and then hand-finished locally with a natural oil finish and engraved with “Alaska”. Thank you for your purchase which promotes free-trade as well as our local artisans and supports responsible use of reclaimed wood enabling sustainability and re-forestation. Custom engraving is available upon request.
