Functionality meets timeless design. Great for cheese boards, charcuterie platters and assorted hours d’oeuvres, this exotic wood charcuterie board adds an artistic stroke to your setting. Handcrafted from sustainably-sourced wood in Guatemala. 

  • 7”W x 13.5”L 
  • Sustainably harvested Mahogany, Jobillo or Pixi
  • Natural variations in wood color and grain
  • Finished in non-toxic, food-safe beeswax derived from local bees 
  • Handwash in warm soapy water, dry promptly

Hardwoods will last a lifetime with a little care. We recommend conditioning with a mixture of beeswax and food safe linseed oil, mineral oil, or any other natural oil that does not turn rancid. Do this once a week for the first month and then sporadically to restore vibrancy when the wood dulls. 

  • Pixi wood - picked just at the right moment to get the map-like spalting lines which only form after the tree is dead, this is a lightweight wood with sandy desert hues.
  • Mahogany wood - a straight, fine grain and warm reddish color which is known to darken over time. 
  • Jobillo wood - warm tones combined with dark streaky grain lines emanate a wonderful sense of depth.

Every gift tells a story

Itza Wood was founded in the Péten Jungle, the largest remaining tropical forest of Central America. Before touching a single tree, Itza's reforestation project had planted 45,000 trees in the heart of the jungle, their way of deepening their commitment to one of nature’s most beautiful treasures. Their mission is to break the cycle of poverty in this region of Guatemala. By providing education and employment opportunities to local residents, they celebrate traditions while empowering and creating a better future for the people.

Itza works with community organized and FSC certified lumber yards and purchase woods certified by the Forest Stewardship Council. To ensure durability, the tropical woods are kiln-dried,  de-stressing them to prevent warping and changes, and the lumber is then transformed by a talented team of carvers, carpenters, and craftspeople.
