“FARM +” BELLYBOARD by Butch
Herefordshire Western Red Cedar core, pre-shaped before laminating between two layers of sustainable Finnish Birch plywood. The core is thinner than the standard board and tapered towards the tail and slightly towards the nose. A layer of 4oz glass cloth is laminated to the core, which combined with the taper gives increased flex, with a quicker more energetic return. Finished with oil and beeswax.
It is a “Board of the Farm”. Made on a farm in a village just outside Ledbury in Herefordshire, by cabinetmaker and master board maker Guy Butcher.
These boards are gaining in popularity and rightly so. The are beautifully engineered and perform as well as they look.
