Stone Vs Timber

Stone Vs Timber

Often we are asked what the benefits of our platters are, compared to a timber board.

  • Durability: Stone is known for its durability and scratch resistance, making it a long-lasting option for serving platters. Timber boards are more susceptible to scratches and can become warped or cracked over time.
  • Hygiene: Stone is non-porous, which means it does not absorb bacteria or germs - this makes it a more hygienic option. Timber boards can harbor bacteria and require more thorough cleaning.
  • Aesthetics: Stone comes in a variety of colors and patterns, allowing for more design options compared to timber boards. Stone platters can also be polished to a high shine, giving them a more sophisticated and elegant look.
  • Ease of Maintenance: Stone is easy to clean and maintain, requiring a wipe-down with a damp cloth. Timber boards, on the other hand, require regular oiling and can be more difficult to clean due to their porous nature.


Overall, the choice between a stone serving platter and a timber board will depend on personal preferences and needs. While timber boards may offer a more rustic look and feel, stone platters are a more durable, hygienic, and low-maintenance option.
