To create his stripped cutting boards, Gautreau takes different wood castoffs, which would otherwise be destined for the landfill, and binds them together. After cutting the boards to shape, he also uses natural beeswax and mineral oil to give them a food-grade, low luster and easy-to-maintain finish.

The bowls, meanwhile, are carved from larger logs of wood and given the same natural varnish and finishing treatment. Previously, Gautreau has also used his signature craftsmanship to create heirloom-quality tables, free-edge shelving and bar tops. Stay tuned as we’re sure to see even more of Gautreau’s handiwork at BKLYN Designs 2014.
