About the Designer
At Orange and Pear, we love unique, handcrafted gifts and we especially
love them when they are made locally! Grant Tankoos, owner of Soundview
Millworks designs and creates these gorgeous cheese boards right around
the corner from us in Darien, CT with a small team of artisans in his
backyard studio. They start with the finest maple and santos mahogany,
both known for their durability and tight grain pattern. Once the blank
is created and assembled by hand, it is dampened slightly with fresh
water to raise the grain. After the grain is raised, the boards are
sanded by hand and coated with 100% natural tung oil, a natural oil
which hardens in the pores of the wood to provide a durable and stain
resistant cutting surface. When the board is dry, it is hand rubbed with
2 coats of a mineral oil and and beeswax combination to create a sealed
and smooth finish. We think these make beautiful and useful gifts-
great for engagements, weddings, housewarming, birthdays, bridesmaids
and groomsmen gifts and to commemorate an event.
