Strepen Twee is a striped serving board that will make your hors d’oeuvres, sushis, or cheeses look even more delightful. This is only the second striped serving board we have made so far – Strepen and twee simply mean ‘stripes’ and ‘two’ respectively in Dutch – so it is still fairly special to us.
Unique and handcrafted
Strepen Twee is a unique and original individual piece, the only one of its kind. It was crafted on a one-off basis by hand using artisanal skills, techniques, and hand tools. No machinery or power tools were used in its crafting.
Woods with a history
The serving board is composed of an astounding 6 (!) of precious fine woods with an interesting history. The walnut, mahogany, and purpleheart were acquired from an old retired Amsterdam woodworker who specialized in quality wooden barometers, a craft that is now almost extinct. He used these fine woods for his masterpieces, but has recently ended his work due to old age and illness. The honey locust is salvaged from a tree that once stood in our very own city, Amsterdam, in the Apollolaan to be more precise. The wood was acquired from Stadshout Amsterdam, a foundation dedicated to giving wood from logged Amsterdam trees a second life. Finally, the oak is a residue of the material that is used in our courses.
