Huntboards originated in the southern colonies and were used as serving pieces for informal gatherings. This accounts for their simple, unembellished design. While the design remains extremely simple, the overall piece has been carefully proportioned with a subtle touch of thin tiger maple inlay below the lower drawers. Since contrasting wood design was popular in the Federal period, we offer this piece in tiger maple, cherry, and a combination cherry with contrasting tiger maple drawers (pictured below). These pieces were also made longer for larger households, so we offer our huntboards in two sizes.
