Massive base. Solid wood cutting board
Solid wood cutting boards are rare. Usually the chosen wood is sawn, glued and after gluing further processed. Konrad Horsch from the Sauerland region of Germany takes a different approach to these boards: he actually works them out of the solid wood of oak, Canadian maple and walnut in his workshop. And like the tree, like the board: The fact that each of these heavy cutting boards is a unique piece, you can recognize not only by small irregularities, as they may occur in the wood surface, but also by the fact that the dimensions may well deviate slightly from those specified here. Since it is still real handwork, please consider all numbers as approximate. An additional usage hint for you: Konrad Horsch's cutting boards do not know front and back. To prevent warping of the wood, you should turn them regularly and use from both sides.
This is his wooden path. Cabinetmaker Konrad Horsch
A product that leaves Konrad Horsch's workshop is anything but just a piece of wood sawn into shape or turned - it's a piece of wood with a history. For every knife edge that passes through his hands, every rolling pin that he puts the finishing touches on, he can provide the biography: Where was the tree from which the workpiece is made, when was it felled and under what circumstances, which plants, animals or fungi have left traces in the wood, why and in what form? Instead of buying from the timber merchant, he therefore prefers to buy his raw material from where it grew - then, as they say in specialist circles, "negotiations are conducted standing on the trunk". Or he recycles old wood and puts it to a new use, often inspired by its original purpose.
Working only with solid wood is a matter of course for the cabinetmaker from Iserlohn, in a manufactory and with minimal use of machinery. Every object that bears his name is made by him, regardless of whether it is a one-off piece such as large solitaire furniture, art objects for public spaces or products made in small series such as those in the Manufactum range. Even if they are not unique, they are made with the same attention to detail as one-of-a-kind pieces, something Horsch learned during his studies with the well-known cabinetmaker James Krenov in California. Last but not least, the character of the wood alone makes each piece unique. Knotholes, annual rings and grains are simply not uniform - and if they were, the wood would also lose its appeal for Horsch.
