A whiskey board is a great way to offer your guests a visual feast while they enjoy sipping these aged blends. These boards can be made to whatever specific needs you have. Display a nice bourbon on one side served with accouterments, or on the reverse side, use for a full spread of charcuterie or cheese in a different setting.
A few examples of whiskey boards here were made from a sunken walnut log that was reclaimed from a stream near Clinton Lake in Lawrence, Kansas. The log was stored in a barn for 20 years. For this project, I teamed up with ceramic artist, Joe Meinecke and we milled the flitches at 4/4. As I worked on the whiskey board, Joe threw the cups and glazed and fired them. Once the cups were finished, I cut the cup indentions to size.
I like the idea of using a cured wood with an aged drink colored by wood and fire, and the simplest of materials included reclaimed trees and earth. Just like a good whiskey, all it takes simple quality materials, time, patience and some skill.
Let me know how we can make your dream whiskey board, or anything else you can imagine for your whiskey/bourbon room. Just contact me and let me know what you are thinking. Lead time will vary based on the request, how busy I am with projects and what process I use. The cups may take a little time to throw and fire. If you want a special wood, just like a good whiskey sometimes this can add to the time frame as well. Glass cups are available by request. Price will also vary based on size, wood, cups and other details, so let me know if you have a specific budget we need to work within if possible.
I look forward to working on your next project!
