Ambrosia Maple Platter
This circular platter was turned from a single piece of Ambrosia maple and has a beaded rim. It is finished with multiple coats of food-safe Odie’s Oil, a solvent-free and non-toxic wood finish.
Ambrosia maple is a term that is used to describe maple that has been attacked by ambrosia beetles. As the beetles bore through the wood (usually a soft maple, such as red maple), they create tiny tunnels that act as channels for a fungus that produces streaking and color patches. Not to worry – both the fungus and the beetles are destroyed during the process of drying the wood, leaving behind a completely natural enhancement with no loss of structural integrity.
Dimensions: 13″ in diameter. Platter is 1-3/4″ tall. The beaded rim is 1-1/4″ wide.
Use and Care Instructions: Do not put the platter in the dishwasher nor let it soak in the sink. Hand wash and wipe completely dry with a soft towel.
