Crafted from sustainably sourced Scottish elm, which is coppiced for the local council as a therapeutic forestry management programme, this chopping board has been carefully hand-carved with a chunky handle for style and ease of use. Each one is made in a nurturing environment designed to restore self-esteem and tech skills to people recovering from mental health illnesses. Every board shows the grain and the shape of the original elm tree and has undergone a triple sanding and grain-raising cycle to prolong its life. Boards come coated in cold-pressed olive oil and also look great as serving or cheese boards. Also available in a smaller size.
Made by volunteers at Fruitful Woods in Edinburgh (see our Makers page for more details).
Due to the organic materials and handmade nature of these items, some natural variation in grain, colour and shape may occur. Images depict the item as accurately as possible.

CARE INSTRUCTIONS Your board will work best if you clean it gently with a damp cloth. It has been oiled for its protection and to stop it warping, but should never be left in water or put in the dishwasher. If it starts to dry out, another coat of olive oil will prolong its life. Best stored out of direct sunlight.
