With its classic design and useful size, this Handmade English Oak Chopping Board will elevate even an everyday meal.
From the maker: Our Oak is always grown in Britain, from trees felled sustainably to manage the woodland. We support small, independent sawmills who really care about the quality of their timber. They quarter-saw the Oak and air-dry in the Derbyshire countryside for a minimum of 18 months. These slow, patient processes result in fantastically characterful wood - it also means your board is strong and stable, unlikely to warp or split and will only get more characterful with age and use. Look after it, and your board will last a lifetime.
When we get wood as fantastic as this, we don't want to do a lot to it. So each board has been carefully cut, shaped and sanded by hand from one single piece of wood to ensure as smooth and useable a surface as possible. It is then finished in food-safe mineral oil, with a final coating of our Vegan Wood Balm which brings out the grain with a subtle lustre. Each board is unique and shows the qualities of the wood - some have small knots or striations across the surface which differ from the photos shown here. None of these affect the structure of the wood.
Each board comes with care instructions to keep it looking its best. Don’t submerge in water, and not suitable for dishwashers. Wipe clean with a damp cloth and dry straight away. Wooden products should be oiled every few months to keep them hydrated.
