Natural Edge Spalted Platter

This is a beautiful Natural Edge Spalted Birch Platter that is a one of a kind item with asymmetric edging.  The style is known as Natural Edge Spalted Platter. The definition of Natural Edge is a wood product with the bark intact or the edge that remains should the bark fall off.  An interesting fact is that wood harvested in the winter or fall will more likely maintain the bark in place. Wood harvested in the spring or summer will often see the bark fall off as the wood dries.  This is due to the wet fibers under the bark not having enough time to attach to the sapwood.

This is an incredible piece of Spalted Birch.  Spalting is the process that occurs when a log begins to decay.  Minerals in the ground enter the wood fibers and create their art.  You will discover new features each time you look at this piece.   It will surely provide years of enjoyment.   The size is 12 inches by 10 inches by 3 inches.  If you like this  Natural Edge Spalted Platter take a look at some other Wooden Platters like this Natural Edge Cutting Board

Care for your Natural Edge Platter

  • Keep out of direct sunlight
  • Minimize exposure to wide swings in humidity levels
  • Do not wash with water, if necessary use only a damp cloth
  • Wax lightly with a quality food safe wax or oil and buff to restore the luster.  I like beeswax, walnut oil or mineral oil.
