Bodu

Bodu cheese boards integrate the elegance of wood with the utility of slate.  While wooden cheese boards are lighter and better for preserving cutlery, kitchen-ready slabs made out of slate allow the user to also display the name of the food they are serving by writing on the slab with chalk. Bodu combines these two qualities with a clean wooden body  and artfully integrated sections of chalkboard paint.

Process  

Bodu is made from oak boards carved and sanded using a combination of power tools and by hand. The chalkboard paint is the final addition and is applied with consideration to each individual board's form.
