Handcrafted Charcuterie Boards
Bee Butter - Homemade Wood Conditioner
Homemade, Organic, and Versatile
The beeswax used to make our Bee Butter comes from our backyard bees in Portland, Oregon. This wood conditioner is completely organic, food grade safe, and can be applied to any of our wooden products. Our Bee butter is used to finish every charcuterie board that we make. Bee sure to grab a jar - it's pure magic!

Our Tree to Table Process
Tree Servicing and SalvageWind Thin Tree Service
We work hand in hand with our business partner, Wind Thin Tree Service, to safely procure and store precarious and diseased trees from all over the Portland Metro Area.
Slabbing, Milling and Stickering
Logs are transported back to our yard in Northeast Portland, where they are milled and slabbed. When this process is complete, they are stickered and banded together. At this point they are ready to begin the drying process.
Drying and Storing
We use two methods of drying, Kiln drying, and solar drying. Logs are stickered for airflow, and generally it will take two to three years for our logs to dry. A moisture meter is used to establish when a slab is ready for the next phase.
Planing and Surface Sanding
The surfaces of our slabs are often textured and uneven after milling and being exposed to the elements. We plane and surface sand our wood to ensure that every piece is flat and smooth.
Creating and Cutting
The decision of what products our logs will become can be made early in the milling process. The species and its natural features can all be variables in this decision. Cutting, shaping, and building are all part of the process. This is a creative endeavor, and we always approach it as such.
Hand Sanding and Finishing
All of our wood products are hand made, hand sanded, and hand finished. This final phase requires attention to detail. We are thorough in this endeavor, and make sure that our wood is sanded to silk. We prioritize this final step because of our mission to repurpose this wood and let it live on as heirlooms for many years to come.
