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.

We are delighted to offer you the opportunity to add imagination, creativity and a jolly dusting of uniqueness to your Christmas table centre.
This is very much a bespoke service. Your mixed forest of 15 trees, ranging from 3 to 8 inches trees will be turned from a selection of woods including ash, oak, cherry, maple, sweet chestnut, lime, sycamore, ash, oak, elm, beech and yew and walnut.
In my pictures I have shown a range of our hand turned Christmas trees in a variety of woods. These range from 2 inches (5 cms) to 8 inches (20 cms) and in girth from the svelte and slim to more hefty and chunky.
You are warmly invited to add preferences of style and other wood types to your order request.
Please note that special requests will add some time to your order, but we will keep you updated with progress.
We would appreciate early orders to avoid any rush in the run up to Christmas, and we anticipate completing orders within 2 weeks from receiving your instruction.
We will be attending fairs in the East Midlands including Chesterfield, Ashbourne Bakewell and Norwood Park, and orders can be collected with the greatest of pleasure. We can gift wrap, but with prior notice please and do include this request in your initial enquiry.
We can supply unique and stylish waney edged boards on which to display your Christmas forest, either from stock or as bespoke pieces.
One day last winter I came home from work to a very excited Nick, who was very keen to show me something he had just turned: a sweet little Christmas tree. I was absolutely delighted and asked for some more. Nick made me fifteen, all different sizes and in different woods, and they sat majestically on our mantle-piece, interspersed with pine cones, holly sprigs and a few red tea lights over Christmas. They looked so pretty that I took some to a few craft fairs and had a great response, so much so that I thought it would be wonderful to offer a bespoke service so that instead of buying my choice of trees, you could choose your own! We can turn quite large pieces at around 8 inches that would make a charming table centre by themselves, or incorporate them into a forest of your choice.
I love rustic Christmas displays and these little trees are elegant, unique and enchanting.
