All of the walnut used in our current charcuterie boards are urban salvage, trees taken down and reclaimed due to land development in Anna, Texas. The wood was slabbed and kiln-dried by a local sawyer with whom The Boardsmith has a good relationship.
Walnut is a dense hardwood, long prized as one of the most desirable woods in furniture making and cabinetry. Most commercially available walnut is steamed, resulting in a somewhat washed out, if consistent, color scheme. In the case of this reclaimed walnut, the lumber has been kiln dried without steaming. As a result, all the natural beauty of the wood is intact, and there is often strong color contrast between the cream colored sapwood and the chocolate colored heartwood.
This nice long size makes for the perfect walnut wood charcuterie board or perfect gift!
