A culinary truism of our times: if a man's gonna entertain, a man can't be serving up eats on a white plastic cutting board.
Ergo, you want the handsome, rugged cutting and serving boards from craftsman Sean Woolsey, taking orders now.
About Sean: a SoCal-based craftsman and son of an artist, Woolsey specializes in “old-fashioned” handmade wood furniture, art and photography, often combining his mediums.
For Woolsey, it’s about imperfection. Or, more accurately, the imprint of time on objects.
Like the wood on his hand-shaped cutting boards, each individually crafted for the kitchen trifecta: cutting, chopping and serving.
- A cherry and black walnut harpoon board, with a spiked handle hand-shaped with a spokeshave.
- The geometric walnut and hard maple tricuterie board.
- A multitude of Hurricane Sandy boards, sourced from fallen trees recovered in post-storm Pennsylvania (proceeds benefit a non-profit for hurricane victims).
And just now available: A Record of Time, Woolsey’s photo travelogue documenting his trip across America in a 1987 VW Westfalia.
Another imperfect (yet fantastically crafted) mission.
