Paul Sampson loves seafood. He enjoys eating outside either in the woods or on the water. China and glass platters are too fragile. Paul decided to design a platter he could use in the wild. His clever oyster, fish and shrimp platters are perfect.
Paul is a Maine artisan with decades of woodworking experience. He hand crafts his oyster, fish and shrimp wooden platters one at a time. Each board is hand selected for it's unique characteristics and detail by Paul. He shapes and carves each board to accentuate the natural beauty inherent in the wood. Each platter is from a single piece of wood, and will vary in color and carving depending on the selected wood.
On the oyster platter, carved indentations hold each oyster securely. The platter's shape echoes that of an oyster shell.
The shape and size of the oyster wells are designed to eliminate the need to nest the oyster in mounds of salt or ice (though there is plenty of room should you choose to use them!). Choose either a half dozen or full dozen platter. The oyster platter comes with leather lace so it can be hung on the wall.
All platters please hand wash and dry. Platters have a food-safe finish. Periodically apply board balm when wood feels dry to the touch to protect platters.
