Tyger Tyger Butcher Block & Plate

Looking at Tyger Tyger, the name of our newest butcher block from Owl Woodworks, you may think it's a typo and that we meant 'Tiger Tiger' or even just 'Tiger' for the strong animal pattern coming from the maker’s use of tigerwood, but Luke Martin titled this piece after “The Tyger,” a poem by William Blake. Like the poem, Luke’s artwork reveals the beauty of nature through the rich and varying tones of the maple and padauk, the stripe-like pattern of the tigerwood, and the mesmerizing symmetry present throughout the balanced cutting surface. On to the utility, you'll find two juice grooves that create an “L” shape positioned opposite the half-moon cut-out where the nicely striped plate sits ready to keep your ingredients out of the way while you chop away. Four premium rubber feet are secured with stainless steel hardware that ensure stability and support on any counter or table. As always, we could go on and on discussing the thoughtful design and true craftsmanship of Luke’s board and soon when preparing meals on this board, we think you too will share our excitement and appreciation.

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.
