Shield Butcher Block & Plate

The Shield to Luke Martin's Spear Butcher Block, this gorgeous piece is crafted from premium maple, black limba, walnut, and padauk. Standing two inches tall, this end grain cutting board is the ultimate food prep surface for the home kitchen, and certainly your chef knife's best friend. In a 20" wide profile with juice grooves along one long edge and one 11" short edge, Luke combines four beautiful hardwoods in a unique pattern that emphasizes each species' grain. The matching custom plate is designed to lay below the board, set into the half-moon cutout Luke sculps into its underside, making the movement of ingredients off the cutting surface a breeze. Rubber feet with stainless hardware keep the board in place on any countertop.

The Story

Artisan Luke Martin of Owl Woodworks crafts luxurious, one-of-a-kind butcher block cutting boards at his workshop in Western Canada. The care and precision with which he works as a bomb disposal technician for the Canadian Military caries over, becoming the same care, patience, and thoughtfulness with which he designs and creates each board. Inspired by his earliest memories of time spent with his mother in the kitchen as a child and meals cooked for his own family today, Luke's desire is to provide an heirloom-quality object that will be used and loved every day.
