We have a range of handcrafted Chopping Boards and Coasters from a range of recycled timbers. Our boards are made to be as durable as possible by using suitable timbers, waterproof, food-safe glue and quality oil and wax finish. Regular maintenance, oiling and/or waxing is required to keep the boards in good condition. After years of service boards will wear with cut marks, principally in the centre, most of our boards can easily be resurfaced giving many more years of usage.
A set of six end grain, hardwood coasters. Made from recycled Tasmanian Oak and Jarrah. A seventh coaster forms the base. Finished in Tung Oil.

Long Grain Boards
Long grain boards are made by using the timber with the grain on the usable surface. As timber is almost always used, for instance, in table tops. The difference is that table tops are held down and this helps to prevent cupping. Chopping boards do not have this luxury and have to be made a little differently. We use relatively thin strips of wood which are then re machined to take out most of the internal tension. The width and depth of each strip of timber is similar. Each strip is carefully glued maintaining even pressure with a food safe, waterproof glue. Long grain boards are generally much easier to make than end grain boards and are considerably cheaper but still very serviceable.

Cheese Boards and Platters
End Grain Boards
End Grain Chopping are considered superior to long grain boards but are much more difficult to make. They are more hard wearing than long grain and less likely to blunt knives. All of our boards are finished in food grade mineral oil and beeswax. A chopping board wax is available to maintain the board. End Grain boards come in an attractive dovetailed frame which serves to allow airflow beneath the board whilst stored and does away for the need for feet, allowing both sides of the board to be used.
We have these platters in Tasmanian Oak or Jarrah. Other timbers are available. Currently in two sizes:
370 x 190 $30
480 x 190 $35 Length includes handle. Can be posted.
