This pebble like, light reflecting Chunky Chopping Board is handmade using the highest quality, locally sourced, sustainable, kiln dried English ash. It features a gentle live natural edge, and comfortable easy grip handles. The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced, with the features of markings, knots, and cracks being celebrated. We take the time to carefully fill these as needed with locally sourced natural beeswax before protecting the board with a few coats of locally produced food safe wax oil. You can also buy this specialist food board protection in our online shop.
When fully grown, ash trees can reach a height of 35m. Tall and graceful, they often grow together, forming a domed canopy. The bark is pale brown to grey, which fissures as the tree ages. Easily identified in winter by smooth twigs that have distinctively black, velvety leaf buds arranged opposite each other.
Wood is naturally anti-bacterial and an ideal medium for food boards, as well as being heat resistant to hot pots and pans. Whether you’re looking for a wooden chopping board, rustic cheese board, wood breadboard, wooden serving platter, or rustic food presentation board – the choice is all yours.
