  • the story

From the Forest

The graphic marbling of spalted maple adds special charm to this durable cutting board. Made from fallen trees uncovered by artisan Spencer Peterman, the unique appearance of the wood is the result of the tree's natural process of deterioration. The gorgeous cutting board is coaxed from an old tree stump - leaving a natural edge - kiln-dried and given a food safe finish. The unexpected beauty of the wood makes the cutting board a special gift for amateur chefs - as well as a delightful addition to your own kitchen. Handmade in Massachusetts.

Unfortunately, this item cannot ship outside of the United States at this time.

  • the maker

Spencer Peterman

Spencer Peterman hand turns his fine wooden bowls in his Western Massachusetts workshop. He gathers wood from fallen trees in the area (and sometimes far outside of it).

Hidden in these fallen trees - especially the ones covered by moss and dirt - is wood disfigured by the beginnings of decomposition. Turning that wood on a lathe produces strikingly unique bowls.

Practices such as kiln drying and applying a natural, food safe finish makes Spencer's work so beautiful.

Comments about TREE STUMP CUTTING BOARD:

for the price, i thought it was going to be heavier and sturdier. it was a lot smaller than expected. on the website, it looked impressive but it really is just a regular cutting board.

    Comments about TREE STUMP CUTTING BOARD:

    This product is not what was pictured online. This is a cheap piece of wood, no rings, no quality and the side of the wood is inked. It is basically a piece of wood cut out with a saw and inked on the sides. Very cheap looking. I wouldn't pay a 1/5th of the price they are asking for this piece of wood. Very Very Disappointed. Looking forward to tomorrow, so I can ship it back.

      Comments about TREE STUMP CUTTING BOARD:

      The appearance of the product was disappointing. The cutting board is much smaller than it appears in the photo and the wood did not have much marbling or unique character as advertised. It will function well as a small wooden cutting board, but not worth the high price. The photo on the website should be changed to reflect the actual appearance.

      Comments about TREE STUMP CUTTING BOARD:

      This board is functional, fun and made of fine wood. The actual photo displayed depicts its originality; however, for the price I was hoping that it was larger than a dinner plate. If it was a few more inches in diameter than I would be praising it more. I'd recommmend it as an adjunct cutting board.

              I ordered this as a gift for my boyfriend. I thought it was great for him because it's more masculine than most kitchen stuff, and he is into recycled tree parts. It was really handsome and sturdy - a very fine piece!
