This stunning X-Large Wooden Rustic Board is handmade using the highest quality, locally sourced, sustainable, kiln dried English pippy brown 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.
True English pippy brown oak is unique to the British Isles. It takes its colour from a fungus that causes the wood to assume a chocolate brown hue which appears as streaks rising up from the base of the tree and tapering out further up the trunk. In continental Europe the effect of the fungus is similar but the oak turns pink rather than brown.
It is said that English forests produce the finest pippy oak in the world. Pippy oak tends to be more of a wild hedgerow tree than a straight oak. This unique hardwood features curly grain with natural clusters of pin knots mainly on the outside of the log similar to cat’s paws giving it a charming rustic character.
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.
