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.

Fine-grained rectilinear ash tea light holder with 6 recesses showing coffee and cream striations to the upper plane and soft, chamfered edges.
This delightful piece of ash is predominantly pale in colour. Although the overall impression is of the cool blonde notes that you would expect from this native British wood, there are just enough nods towards the warmth of creamy taupe to add contrast and depth.
Somewhat angular in shape yet soft in finish, this slim piece sits gracefully on an over-mantle or side board. When the tea lights are lit, they cast imaginative shadows as the flames flicker, and this seems to bring the grain to life in an almost ethereal way!
The dimensions of this piece are:
Length: 14 inches (36 cms)
Width: 2 inches (5 cms)
Height: 2 inches (5 cms)
Weight: 0.7 kgs
Please note that this not a food-safe piece, so no care kit is provided with it!
Although our passion is for waney edged and very natural wood, we have recently had the opportunity to create some rather angular pieces from standard-cut native wood.
Nick has given this lovely and neat piece the same time and attention that he gives to our cheese boards and food plinths, and I think it looks quite delightful. Waney ash, with it warps, wonks and fabulous faults, is without a doubt stunningly beautiful, but this uniform-cut and well behaved piece demonstrates that there is beauty in the simple graining and subtle colour changes.
I love candle light and I particularly like the way this piece looks when the tea lights are lit. Somehow the cool asheyness (!!!) warms up and just glows!
