Last year, I set out to make the ultimate chopping board.
Here it is.
Based on a traditional butcher's block, the grain faces end up. This means it's incredibly hard wearing and won't blunt your knives. It's made from carefully selected staves of solid Cherry, the ideal wood for kitchen utensils due to its naturally close grain. These staves are then glued and clamped together in a random pattern to ensure that all the joints are staggered - this adds strength. Finally, all the edges are chamfered to prevent chipping and each board is hand finished with four coats of food safe oil.
Reassuringly solid and built to last.
