Personalised Chopping Board/Serving Platters
Personalised Chopping Boards/Serving Platters
Our Sycamore Slabs are all handpicked and handmade, I look for good quality wood with beautiful grain patterns. Sycamore is not only beautiful to look at but is also a hygienic surface, perfect for chopping boards and food platters.
Working chopping boards, as opposed to decorative ones, were traditionally made from light coloured, fine grained hardwoods. Timbers such as sycamore, beech, maple, the fruitwoods (apple and pear) are common choices. Coarse grained timbers such as ash and oak have deep pores which harbour bacteria and so aren't hygienic. Some timbers (notably oak, walnut, mahogany and redwoods) contain tannin which will combine with moisture from foodstuffs to form tannic acid. This acid can taint and stain foodstuffs.
All wood is sanded smooth and is stained at least twice with a food grade Butchers Block oil.
I also offer a Butchers Block chopping board made with a selection of hard woods (including beech).
These make wonderful wedding, engagement, new home and Mothers or Father’s day presents.
We would like to emphasize: never put wooden kitchen utensils in the dishwasher or leave them to soak in water. Instead, wash straight after use and leave to air dry. Treat with linseed oil occasionally.
