    Those fit the bill in my mind. Although they would like nicer in flamed or burled redwood

    This has got me thinking too, because I hate using plastic plates and bowls, but I also have children and they can, have, and will destroy any and all brittle dishes over time. I want wooden everything, and I don't mind handwashing them, but the trick is getting one that I can scrub if it's got dried food bits in it.

    We have bamboo bowls that we use, but they suck because they've warped and shrunk and cracked over the years and now they are good for just dry snacks(probably all they were originally intended for).

    I know hardwoods are expensive(like $7-10/BF), but I bet there's a solution here, at least for plates.

    Still remember the old Dansk wooden bowls around the house.
    Thinking a shallow-dished, rectangle plate might be ideal...

    This one looks great to me.


    The only way they can be produced at a low price is if someone is mass producing them and automating most of the process.

    They look nice. A bit pricey at ~$30 each, but what can you do.

    Mark,

    This is exactly what I am talking about, classy and elegant without looking like a cutting board. Very nice find, why do I have such expensive taste?

    These are chargers. Not meant to be in contact with food. Something you set a plate on.

    I found these too, but somehow they were not special enough... Although they are fully serviceable and quite nice.

    i was thinking of something along the lines of a wooden equivalent of a slate board that keeps getting used by our scandinavian friends for plating. It could have a partial natural edge? Or a nifty bevel design to make it a little unconventional.

    Ideally with a nice wood with a closed grain that is somewhat resistent to having moisture and having food in contact with it.

    $30-60 per plate would sort me out. A little more than that is possible too...

    This is just about the only plate I've found that Approaches what I was hoping for... except that it is too big, it has feet, and it is too thick, and it looks like a cutting board. So if it were slightly more oval/irregular shaped, smaller, no feet, less thick, and hence cheaper - it would fit the bill.

    take a look at this guys stuff, he's rustic, but it is unique and I'm sure he would make you what you are looking for at a reasonable price. http://www.etsy.com/shop/BigBbowls
