*** These platters will ship out during the week of Dec 12th and will arrive within NZ before Christmas ***
These serving platters are made from a selection of native New Zealand timbers, including Mātai, Tōtara, Miro and Rimu. The timbers are sourced from an accredited supplier of wind felled and salvaged wood.
The design speaks to the abundance of the ngahere (forest), and is carved approximately 0.7mm deep to aid with easy cleaning.
Each board is 250mm x 500mm x 20mm.
They are finished with a low-sheen food-grade oil-wax polish.
This is a natural product that must be treated with care. There is natural variation between each of the timbers and no two are alike.
These taonga are a beautiful gift for even the most discerning recipient and are a wonderful conversation piece for your home. Their timeless design and quality workmanship will endure for many years to come.
The darkest hue wood in our range is the Tōtara- the mid range is likely a Rimu. If you have strong preference for which board you would like, please add a note at checkout or send us an email. Unless specified, your platter will likely be Rimu.
These taonga are made in Taranaki in collaboration with my brother Reuben, Tapatoru Design.

Thank you so much for the wonderful platter. I enjoyed working with your company to get a beautiful taonga that I know will be treasured by the newly married couple. Thanks for checking with me on the wording, spelling etc. i loved the warmth and beauty of the wood. The design that was carved in was gorgeous. I really think that this platter was perfect for the occasion.
The most beautiful serving board I have ever seen. My whanau absolutely loved this gift and I’m definitely going to purchase one for myself when more stock is available!
Beautiful piece! Will not be disappointed!
This platter was stunning with beautifully presented Rimu, and the addition of the designs to it, it was made even more special. Solid rimu, beautiful colour, and awesomely wrapped too! This platter had to get unwrapped early to serve kai on Xmas eve and was still talked about on Xmas day! Thank you!!
Ordered the Manaaki Serving Platter as a wedding gift. Requested if possible to engage a custom message.
Worth every cent! It arrived and is stunning.
Every step of the process was amazing. Highly recommend the platter and Aho Creative.
