baguette slicing boardby Stacy Borocz
- the story
Toast with the Most
When a career change relocated Stacy Borocz from Atlanta to Budapest, the former Atlanta-based merchandise manager didn't realize the treasured opportunity she'd soon discover at the footsteps of her new home.
Stacy's passion for one-off discoveries and her desire to explore her new environs inspired her to seek out unusual and often overlooked locations, such as flea markets, shuttered factories, and military bases. She eagerly rummaged through each place for its hidden relics and delved deep into her ancient city's rich history by repurposing the antiquated artifacts she uncovered.
Like Stacy's other finds, this handsome baguette board carries with it the thoughtfulness and craftsmanship of its original makers. The sturdy slab of reclaimed timber used has been salvaged from old buildings throughout Europe. Each lengthy plank is hand-sanded and incised with perfectly portioned, slice-sized notches for simple serving. The wood is finished with natural beeswax or mineral oils for a smooth, splinter-free, and bread-safe finish.
Functioning both as a dependable chopping board and a timeless serving tray, this bold piece can go straight from prep to entertaining, giving crispy loaves of French bread a presentation fit for the Parisian table. Made in Hungary.
Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

- the maker
Stacy Borocz spends her days traveling throughout Europe in search of salvageable objects, such as vintage glass and wooden beams that she can sustainably repurpose and import to the U.S.
Stacy and her team attend local markets and explore old homes, barns and warehouses to find architectural elements that can be recast as useful housewares. For example, 19th century timber salvaged from abandoned buildings is honed into thick, rustic trivets that are hand-finished with natural beeswax and mineral oils.
No two pieces are exactly alike, and each has a history all its own. collection
