This characterful Live Edge Rustic Board is handmade using the highest quality, sustainable English oak. It features a gnarly live natural edge, striking grains, 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.
In England the oak has for centuries been a national symbol of strength and survival. It has played an important part in our culture – couples were wed under ancient oaks in Oliver Cromwell’s time, the festive Yule Log was traditionally cut from oak. It features on the 1987 pound coin and is the inspiration for the emblem of many environmental organisations.
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.
