The cutting and serving board from SOHA Concept is cut from oak by means of a motor saw, and boiled in vegetable oil for as long as three days and nights. Thanks to it, the board has its unique dark coloration. During this long boiling, the wood texture becomes saturated with oil, and is now water-resistant. You can wash a board like this, and it will not crack.
In treating those boards, no dyes or mordants were employed, and their color was obtained only through a long boiling in vegetable oil with the specific temperature. The hue of each board is a little different as it depends on many factors.
If you want to see the exact board you have ordered, please note that in your comment to the order, and we shall send you photos of available boards of the specified types and sizes before shipping. You will be able to choose.
The board is trapezoid, and on one side it is cut with a shallow circular pattern made with a motor saw; the back side is smooth. Both sides fit for both cutting and serving.
The board will age beautifully with time.
SOHA designs are inspired by the traditional architecture and utensils of the Russian North. The items produced are bordering object design and contemporary art, without losing their connection with nature and traditional crafts.
Important note. SOHA boards are meant for cutting and serving; they do not accommodate chopping. If used like this, there is a considerable risk of splitting the wood along the grain.
For cutting, there are special cross-cut boards.
The boards size:
Small - 30 x 15 cm
Medium - 35 x 18 cm
Large - 43 x 22 cm
