The lipped edge has now been added to our selection of end grain chopping boards. For a good long while, we have made a long-grain chopping board with a lipped front edge to help grip the worktop and keep your cutting board still. Ideal for working with dough, cutting hard vegetables and general carving. MakeMeSomethingSpecial’s handmade End Grain cutting boards with lipped edges are constructed from the finest hardwood namely English oak and American Black Walnut. This cutting board, in particular, has to be one of the finest worktop savers we currently make.
No matter which timber you choose, either the warm honey blonde colour of the oak or the rich dark chocolate colour of the walnut, both timber are very beautiful when set out in the butcher’s block pattern, you really see all the contours of the grain when the timber is turned on its side.

What’s special about our end grain chopping boards…? These high-quality chopping boards are designed to be extremely long-lasting and also kinder to your knife’s edge. This is because when your knife cuts down on an end grain chopping board it passes between the fibres of the wooden chopping board, the fibres then close up again once the blade is removed. It’s not difficult to see why these chopping boards are the No.1 choice for professional chefs and butchers.
Once you have chosen your chopping board size you can then tell us how deep you want the lipped edge to overhang. We would recommend taking the time to measure the thickness of your worktop and choose the same depth for the lip. Most wooden worktops are around 4cm thick and most stone and granite tops between 25 – 30mm. This will give a continuous uninterrupted look to your chopping board when in situ when in your kitchen. This will also make sure the overhanging lipped edge of your chopping board does not interfere with drawer or door openings.
All of our wooden chopping boards are treated with several coats of all natural Vegan rated food safe chopping board oil. There is nothing harmful in our oils, no hardeners or solvents, no bi-products, just 100% non-toxic natural plant based oils. Meaning our chopping boards are perfectly safe to use and we would have it no other way. This does mean aftercare and regular oiling is essential to keep your chopping board protected.
