How To Order Your Customized Breadboard
You have 2 exciting options for personalizing your beautiful handmade breadboard.
- Option 1: Choose the Wine Bottle Breadboard or Celtic Breadboard
with the cafe graphic, as shown, and let me know what name you would like it
personalized with in the checkout (in the customer comments field). You might
choose a family name or something fun like "George's Private Reserve" to
personalize your breadboard.
- Option 2: Choose the Wine Bottle Breadboard or Celtic Breadboard with
totally custom laser carving. In the customer comments field at checkout, let me
know your wishes for text, graphics, or both and I will promptly email you back to
discuss your laser carving wishes.
An additional charge may be required for especially complex work, but only
with your approval. Customized items are not returnable.
About the Wine Bottle Breadboard
Have you ever noticed the wide variety of wine bottle shapes? This is not a
haphazard process. The good people who create these wonderful spirits have strong
feelings on which bottle is the best for each wine. A long tradition and much
thought have gone into these vessels. This prompted me to think that the
accessories to a beautiful wine and cheese table should reflect this same
thoughtfulness. My handcrafted breadboards let you personalize the way you serve
your guests. The Wine Bottle Breadboard is perfect for customizing with your
personal favorite vintage name, with your company name, family name, or other
meaningful text. Or, choose the totally custom carving option from the
drop down box, above, and I can help you design your own "private label" to be
custom laser carved on your lovely wine bottle breadboard.
About the Celtic Breadboard
I have taken the traditional paddleboard and given it a slightly different shape.
The flair of the handle is reminiscent of a Celtic cross, giving the breadboard
a unique look with a fluid line. This breadboard, with its cafe graphic, can be
personalized with your name, company name, or slogan. Or, choose the totally
custom carving option from the drop down box, above, and use the customer
comments field in the checkout to tell me about your custom design wishes. The
Celtic Breadboard would look wonderful with a Gaelic inscription!
Fishers Laser Carvers is a family-friendly business and accepts only family-friendly
laser carving projects.
Care and Cleaning of Your Breadboard
Cleaning your breadboard requires just rinsing off with water and towel drying. Do
not place in water to soak. Do not put in the dishwasher. Keep it away from registers or
heat vents. A light coat of mineral oil (never use cooking oils), applied once a year,
should keep your breadboard in good shape for decades.
The Story Behind My Handcrafted Breadboards
Several years ago, we had the opportunity to travel to California. The weather was
not cooperating with our plans. We arrived in the middle of El Nino! This put a
damper on our activities so we decided to take a tour of the wine country. After
visiting 8 wineries, we were having a little trouble walking back to the bus and
were starting to have multiple religious experiences. We also learned a lot about
wine and the ancient craft of viticulture. We came away with a new understanding and love of
wine. Some of my favorite recollections are of sitting on a real California-style
deck on a summer evening enjoying the company of friends, some cheese and fruit
and a nice wine. Like bread and cheese, wine is another one of those simple
pleasures that make life rich.
Having wine with friends is a tradition with surprisingly ancient roots.
Indeed, French caves that contain prehistoric cave paintings also contain primitive
rock bowls stained with tannins from berries and grapes. This means that early
man was making wine. Perhaps he discovered that after a long day of being chased
by wild beasts, a little wine helped take the edge off. He certainly discovered
that a warm fire, good company, good food and drink make life worth living.
Our breadboards carry on this convivial tradition in an intensely personal way.
Made from thoughtfully selected hard maple, hand planed and carefully shaped, these
simple breadboards are a memorable rendition of a slicing and serving
board. Ideal for presenting your crustiest loaves, choicest fruits and best cheeses at your
next gathering, Fishers Laser Carvers' breadboards will charm your guests and
make a masterful gift for your favorite wine lover or discriminating baker!
