The tray is out of beechwood, also known as the “poor man’s wood”. It is inspired by meals I had while retired in Cistercian abbeys, sharing water and bread. The breadboard seeks to enhance the simplicity and beauty of a shared meal. It has been handcrafted by one of the last few french wood turner.
