Serious cooks need serious work space. This narrow, counter-height piece expands prep space greatly without obstructing key paths of travel. The red-brown surface is solid Sepetir, an Indonesian hardwood. Sounds glamourous, but the species is widely used as flooring for semi-truck trailers, which is where the scraps used here served their first tour of duty. The steel base is designed with a high support. and a wide stance for stability and enough clearance for stools from all angles. The simple oil and wax finish is completely food safe.
