In Nautical Detail
This maple serving tray is great for serving light hors d'oeuvres and cheeses. It's got stainless steel handles and strips of sapele for nice accenting. Great for dinner parties or nights in with friends.
How I Was Made
Day fourteen of a windless ocean left me stranded a few miles off the coast of Myanmar. I hadn't eaten in four days and the still water, like glass, brought no tidings of aquarius eats. A storm cloud approached from the east and like a what I thought was a shadow of a cloud turned out to be a miracle: a school of fish, heading right for me.
Thinking fast I grabbed a net from the edge of the deck and waited. Waited a bit longer. I let the net go and with a large splash there was a frantic disturbance in the shadow in the water, and when the foam cleared, I saw it. Three single fish caught in the remains of an old fishing net. Dinner was on.
I carved away on the deck of my boat as the storm clouds brought enough wind to push me inland. With a heavy stomach and a light heart, I strolled away back home to get some well-deserved sleep. The next day I took a piece of the deck and made a carving board to remind me that even when the storm is coming, it can bring good tides of change.
