These are handmade solid hardwood tostoneras. Each one of these is meticulously hand shaped and sanded using beautiful high quality hardwoods. They are designed to be put to work in the kitchen daily or as decoration for your home. If taken care of well these tostoneras will be with you for generations.
Each tostonera is cut from the same solid piece of hardwood lumber and the grain arranged for maximum strength before cutting the final shape. They are then hand sanded to a high grit to ensure a smooth clean feel in the hand. Next, solid brass hinges are attached. Finally they are soaked in mineral oil bath before a coat of beeswax is applied to seal and protect the wood.
Available in 3 different woods :
American Black Walnut (Dark), Cherry Wood (Medium), and Maple (Light) - all grow commonly in North America and considered premium hardwoods.
These tostoneras are solid wood, and their color is 100% natural. No dyes or paints are ever applied to our wood products.
Each of these are made to order, they typically will ship in 1-2 weeks. If you need it sooner, need to place a bulk order, or have additional questions please feel free to contact us. The items pictured are an example, each will have unique variations in grain and color.
All of our wood kitchen products are hand made in our shop using some the best locally purchased domestic and exotic hardwoods. All wood is professionally kiln dried ensuring the ideal moisture level to prevent warping and cracking.
Every kitchen product is 100% food safe, never using any dye or stain and only high-quality food safe glues. They are then finished with several coats of food grade mineral oil which penetrates and protects the wood grain as well as brings out the natural luster and beauty of each species of wood used. Finally, a coat of beeswax is applied to further protect the wood, beeswax helps stop the ingress of moisture and food particles and makes the wood easier to clean.
Before shipping one last treatment is applied to ensure it is ready for use the moment you open your box. Most items are also shipped with care instructions, if properly cared for each will be an heirloom piece that can last generations. Our blend of mineral oil and beeswax used to treat all of our products is also available in our store.
We're extremely proud of each piece we create, and love seeing them in the hands of others. We know you'll love it too. But, if for any reason you're not happy with your purchase we will happy to accept returns within 7 days of receiving it as long as it is unused, less the cost of shipping.
