end grain cutting board in ash


This is the ultimate prep board.

Long-used by butchers, end grain boards are the most durable option there is – kind to your knife too! The end grain of the timber “opens up” when you cut into it – the surrounding pressure of the blocks keeps things tight, and the surface gleaming. This means less stress on your knife, and less marking on your board.

Made from solid pieces of Ash, making these boards is a painstaking process – but the results are well worth the effort. Durability is key and the end grain creates patterns you can get lost in!

Finished with a slow-curing and hard-wearing food-safe oil, and then 2 topcoats of our Wood Balm.

Comes with a free tin of Wood Balm.

Dimensions – 300 x 400 x 40mm.
