These are some sushi plates and boards that I recently made for sale. They are made from mixed woods of walnut, maple, and cherry. They are finished with a beeswax mixed with mineral oil. The last picture is of a breadboard I just finished.

Nice.

Do you sell them as sets, or all individually?

Very nice.

As one who has spent quite a bit of time in Asia I offer one thought for your consideration. Here in the US, whenever I visit an Asian restaurant I am bothered that a chop stick cradle is not offered. This is a small device with a curve on the top that allows you to set your chopsticks down without them touching the table. If you have buyers for sushi boards, I bet they would also be buyers of chopstick cradles. They are very easy to make out of wood.

Here is a cutesy example that is not made out of wood – it’s the best I could find.

Going off of Rich’s suggestion above, I’m not sure if this would be appropriate or not, but what about incorporating the chopstick cradle into the board itself? Maybe off to one side, up in a corner?

You don’t really load the tray out to the edges with sushi, right, so why not put it all together?

You could probably just glue a decorative piece of wood to raise the end of the chopsticks up, or use a couple of slightly raised dowels, with a small piece of wood riding across them perpendicularly.

Jonathan- I sell them individually on my site. Furstwoodworks.com Now that you say it that way I think I need to change that. I will think about the addition for the chop sticks. For now the customers seem to like the simplicity. Thanks for looking.

Rich- I like the ideal of having a separate piece for the chop sticks, like you mentioned. I will come up with something simple to go with. Thanks to both for sharing.

Darn you are making me hungry, (Where is the Soy Sauce) Nice plates, and very, very Nice work and I also think the last suggestion was very valid, a matching separate piece for the chop stickz would be cool, and never be afraid to push the envelope :)

Be Well and God Bless…

Nice boards! The idea of a separate holder is good for a few reasons: you can keep the price lower on the boards, customers may not want the additional piece on the board, and selling such a simple accessory should have a great profit margin. Good luck with thee sales!
