Color — Walnut
Handcrafted from richly grained, highly durable walnut, this gorgeous butcher block is one you won’t mind leaving on the counter in between uses. Like all of Alexis Steelwood’s artisanal wood pieces, it is made from reclaimed wood that would otherwise be discarded—so no two burled, swirled, and knotted boards are ever alike. Use it as a serving platter, an impromptu trivet, or in its intended form for heavy-duty chopping, deboning, and fileting.
Father-daughter duo Fred Masaro and Alexis Dodd are in the business of transforming reclaimed antique wood into the sleekest charcuterie boards, serving trays, bowls, pizza paddles, and hand-carved spoons we’ve ever seen. By embracing the wood’s knots, marks, and imperfections, they’re able to give a second life to what would otherwise be discarded material. Sustainable, durable, and meticulously crafted, these pieces will be your dinner-party fixtures and kitchen-counter mainstays.
