Blackcreek Mercantile Blackline Maple Butcher Block
This is a great statement for any kitchen. This is a stunning large-scale butcher block in the iconic Blackline of Blackcreek. It is a very chic take on your classic butcher block. This piece has a great weight to it as well as sweet little feet on the bottom so it stays put when you put it down.
"The wood items in Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co.’s Blackline Collection utilize a natural reactive process to give them their distinctive dark finish. No pigments are used to create this black color. This unique technique makes use of the tannic acid inherent in white oak to develop a deep, durable, food-safe dye; the source of which comes from within the wood itself.
As with most natural processes, some variation in color is to be expected. Natural dyes will “wear” over time developing a rich patina that is special to the object and how it is being used.
The finish is surprisingly resilient and to some extent “self-healing’. Leaving food to sit on wooden kitchenware for extended periods of time is inadvisable in general. It should be noted that citrus foods and tart berries may affect the natural finish if left to sit on boards or bowls for extended periods of time"
About blackcreek mercantile
"After years working in the furniture and interiors industry Joshua Vogel created Blackcreek Mercantile & Trading Co. as a way to explore small scale product design and manufacturing, and to reconnect himself with the practice and idea of handmade goods. All of BCM&TCo.'s products are made by people right here in our Kingston, New York studio. . . lovingly, and with care. We strive daily to get closer in understanding to the elements of our craft, not further removed. We seek to connect good ideas with great materials through simple processes that, in turn, connect our customers directly to the essence of the work. After taking an eight year hiatus from furniture, Joshua launched a collection of pieces under BCM&T Co. utilizing this same ideology.
We believe that through an open sharing of skills and encouraging our employees to both learn and create, we can grow together through the pursuit of excellence. The goal of our work is to create enduring, beautiful, and functional objects that you will love to use as much as we love to make . . . from our hands to yours."
