Shop Announcement:

Our boards are very much pieces in flux. Our woods are not subjected to fast drying techniques, and inevitably this means that our pieces will change over time as they adapt to the temperature variations and moisture fluctuations in your home. We think that this adds charm and interest to our pieces and we anticipate no detriment to their performance and beauty. Expect some movement to surfaces and a degree of shape-shift as knots and burrs continue their seasoning process. Please note that although our boards are robust, they are not sold as chopping boards. All of our pieces wipe clean after use, ideally with damp kitchen paper, and are best left to air-dry. We advise the occasional application of some food safe oil on the surface of your board to enhance appearance and protect the integrity of the wood. Some foods, especially dark fruits like raspberries, ripe strawberries and cherries may leave surface marks on your board. After wiping and allowing your board to dry, a very light sanding and a little food safe oil will remove them.

We provide care-kits with all of our food safe pieces. This gives you some fine-grit sand paper, a sample of food safe oil with product details and a care information sheet.

For purchasers within 10 miles of NG8 we will re-sand and re-oil any Waney Grain Planches de Bois piece free of charge within one year of purchase, on site where facilities permit. All other services are by negotiation.

All Waney Grain Planches de Bois pieces can be personally delivered within 10 miles of NG8 free of charge. Other personal delivery options by negotiation. Please note that my decorative props are not included in the price!

For bespoke pieces we offer full consultation, installation and after care services.

SOLD Waney edge rip-cut yew cheese board with fissure and branchlet
Love this


This chunky yet charming yew cheeseboard boasts wonderful knots, eccentricities and inclusions and makes a dramatic and stylish way to serve cheeses and the delicious accompaniments, like grapes, nuts, rustic breads, fruit cake and biscuits.

The approximate dimensions of this board are:

Length: 14 inches (36 cms)
Width: 9 inches ( 23 cms)
Height: 1.5 inches (4 cms)
Weight: 1.8 kgs

This yew cheeseboard is predominantly demerara gold with two contrasting waney edges: one deep dark chocolate, the other pale and creamy. The creamy edge includes a rugged branchlet, a deep delve and some delightful prickle-back which adds texture and interest to this lovely piece.

With swirls, knots and seal-point tear-drop inclusions this board is quite simply delightful.

Sanded to a silk-feel finish and treated with food-safe oil.

We warmly welcome enquiries and requests.


I love dressing our boards for photo-shoots and although I love dressing them with cheeses and cakes, I love photographing them 'off food duty' - wearing candles, ceramics, flowers and naked!

Our lovely boards combine the practical function of elegant food presentation with the beauty of natural wood as a captivating and decorative piece that can sit gracefully on a dining table or sideboard and simply be enjoyed.

My green rabbit is a favourite, and came from a potter in Boscastle. I often sit it on my pieces because it offers a start contrast between the up-thrusting soft green lines of a star-gazing creature alongside the warmth and organicness of wood.
