This golden coloured Large Wooden Chopping Board is handmade using the highest quality, locally sourced, sustainable, kiln dried English ash. It features a soft live natural edge, tight grains with a crystal like feature, 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.
Traditionally the ash tree was thought to have medicinal and mystical properties. The wood was burned to ward off evil spirits. Here in Britain we regarded ash as a healing tree. In Norse Viking mythology, ash was referred to as the ‘Tree of Life’. Even today it is sometimes known as the ‘Venus of the woods’.
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.
