Serving tray/cutting board made of elm wood from an elm forest on the Island Hidra in the south of Norway, about a two hour drive away from our workshop. The island has a wealth of history dating back to viking times and is inhabited by a population of 700 people.

The elm trees were cut down by the state electrical company to make room for electricity pylons. Most of the wood had unfortunately been turned into firewood. So, the best alternative was to turn some of it into kitchen utensils.

Elm is called the tree with a thousand elves eyes and is truly unique. There aren't many elm trees left in the world. The trees have been and are still being decimated by the elm disease, which has turned large areas in America and Europe barren for this tree type. We would never even consider cutting down a living elm tree. We must take care of the remaining, healthy Norwegian elm forests.
