HAND CRAFTED BREADBOARDS & OTHER WOODEN ARTICLES

HARD WOOD BREADBOARD BATCHES

Steaned beech and walnut breadboard

From time to time, I produce small batches of hand made bread boards or other wooden articles.

When the next batch is produced, the boards will be offered for sale on this page.

The example is shown on the right, is a steamed beech breadboard with American walnut used to create the darker stripes.

Please note, the breadboard pictured has been oiled with vegetable oil. This brings out the colour of the wood. Before oiling, the breadboards are much paler in colour.

ABOUT THE BREADBOARDS

  • The breadboards are made from a selection of FSC certified hardwoods. This, hopefully, ensures that the timber comes from sustainable sources. Find out more about FSC.
  • They can include combinations of timbers, including, for instance, beech, ash, cherry, walnut, or maple.
  • Each breadboard is hand finished with 150 grit sandpaper.
  • Wooden breadboards are believed to be more hygenic than other alternatives - although this has not been scientifically proven. They are thought to provide a more hostile environment to microbes, either because of the rapidity of the drying of the wood, or possibly because of the tannic acid content. 

LOOKING AFTER BREADBOARDS

In order to preserve and prolong the life of the breadboards, the following applies.

  • The first step necessary, is to oil your breadboard.
  • Wooden breadboards should not be left in water. After rinsing, they should be left to dry in a washing rack, or stood leaning on their side. They should not be stood on end, as the end grain is more vunerable to the ingress of water.
