It doesn’t matter what I call these. Everyone that walks into my booth sees these pieces and exclaims, “Surfboards!” So, these are surfboards.
These elegant cheese & cracker servers have sweeping cove cuts under each edge, making for a unique piece that sits very lightly on your table.

All are finished with mineral oil & a topcoat of board butter, which is mineral oil mixed with locally-harvested beeswax, 2/3 – 1/3 by weight. All pieces get non-skid rubber feet held on with stainless steel screws for long life.
