This sizeable Oak Chopping Board is handmade using the highest quality, locally sourced, sustainable, kiln dried English oak.

The natural beauty of the wood is enhanced with a few coats of locally produced food safe oil. You can also buy this specialist food board protection in our online shop.
Royalty has had a long association with oak trees with ancient kings adorning themselves with crowns of oak leaves. It is said that King Charles II hid from his pursuers in an oak tree at Boscobel House and Roman Emperors were presented with crowns of oak leaves during victory parades. Druids frequently performed rituals in oak groves and cherished the mistletoe that grows on oak tree branches.
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.
