    Exotic olive wood cheese boards are prized for their distinctive color and pattern.

    The wood used by the Peruvian Artisans from Lima is between 100 and 150 years old. Wood of this age is specifically chosen for its distinctive pattern. The difficulty of finding suitable wood to craft means high quality aged olive wood products are not widely available and are truly unique and one of a kind. An olive wood serving knife is included.

    The Story Behind The Product

    Franco & his son live in an economically underdeveloped neighborhood in Lima, Peru. Wood carving has been passed down from father to son for generations and Franco has learned and worked the legendary Spanish skill since he was a young boy. Peru?s craftsmen hold the master key to creating these unique pieces of art. Franco is one of the most skilled artists and a master craftsman. Franco works with 22 artisans and Worldstock is one of their main sources of income. They use traditional methods & the only power tool they use is a polisher. Everything else is hand-crafted. Franco obtains wood from the forest area of Peru. No olive tree is damaged or destroyed in the wood harvesting process. It is gathered and sold to artisans when the trees are pruned and then used to create priceless works of art.

    What is Worldstock?

    The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.

  • Pretty cheese board, a bit fragile

    This is a very pretty little cheese board. It has generally held up well, except that a section of the bark cracked off after the first use (and before cleaning it). It does not detract much from what is anyway a natural product, but it was a little disappointing, as we are not hard on our serving ware.

    • Did the color match the color displayed onsite? Yes
    • Please tell us about the quality of the product. Good quality in general
    • How accurate was the sizing? Accurate

  • Beautiful

    What a great piece of wood. I would love to get a larger one, but I'm very happy with this piece.

  • Just OK

    I ordered this for a gift exchange and wehn I got it I thought it was pretty, but didn't look equivalent to the price I paid, so I felt I needed to get a gift certificate to add to the gift. I would not buy it again

  • Came wrapped in old newspaper!

    Received item in a Priority Mail box, packed in old newspaper! No original packaging? Not too schnazzy of a Christmas gift looking like its already belonged to someone. It's pretty, but smaller that I had anticipated too.

  • Didn't like it!

    I was disappointed to see how small the cheese board was. It was definitely not worth of the price paid.
