1. Personalised chopping board set with stand

These chopping board sets are of the same high quality as the rest of our wooden chopping boards – which we’re best known for – with both the small and the large chopping boards being made from solid American White Oak, and the medium size board made from American Black Walnut. The stand is handmade from a single price of solid English Oak and features 3 slots to neatly house the boards when not in use.
