Ember Butcher Block & Plate

An ember can be all it takes to set the kitchen on fire, and Ember by Luke Martin of Owl Woodworks glows especially bright as a new year begins. Fiery red padauk wood is the canvas from which purposefully placed black walnut pieces with tips of sapwood seem to glow, highlighted by matchstick-like cuts of eastern maple. Long at 21", by 12" wide, with matching hand-turned plate of padauk and black walnut, this exquisite two-part kitchen tool makes for an unforgettable cutting and meal prep experience. Luke crafts this and every board by hand at his studio in Western Canada, using only premium cuts of the best woods, in thick, end-grain configuration, fitting the underside with heavy-duty rubber and stainless steel feet.

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.
