This Solid Wood Serving Board is handmade using the highest quality, sustainable English oak. It features an appealing natural edge, clean running grains, comfortable easy grip handles and a food safe mineral oil finish. This board is great as a serving board, presentation board or day to day chopping board. The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced, with the features of knots, cracks and markings being celebrated.
The English oak (also known as the pedunculate oak) is the unrivalled king of the forest in Britain. It is synonymous with strength, size and longevity. One of its most recognisable characteristics is the shape of its leaves. Pale green in colour, they have four or five lobes on each side and are attached to the branches with almost no stalk. In contrast, the acorns are borne on long stalks known as peduncles, hence the name ‘pedunculate oak’.
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.
