These large live edge chopping boards are simply stunning. Handmade by our skilled craftsmen in our Surrey Hills workshop, these large natural edge cutting boards are the perfect gift for those who love to cook.
Locally sourced from our nearby sawmill these large natural edge cutting boards are hand-selected by us for their natural beauty and then transformed into beautiful organic, rustic wooden chopping boards with a silky smooth hand-sanded finish. Completely unique, these rustic oak chopping boards are all made to order, by hand and will vary in size and shape from board to board depending on the tree they were sawn from. These are really special oak chopping boards which will last you for years and years and years.
Our Live Edge chopping boards will feature no bark along the live edge, just simply the natural edge with the bark removed. For two reasons, firstly because the bark is were insects and worms live, so best it is not included in with a kitchen preparation board. The other reason is that once the timber has been thoroughly dried in a kiln, the bark tends to fall off, if not during this process then later on once you begin using and washing the board. Due to using this specific part fo the tree, there will be signs of natural activity of woodworm and holes which add to the live edge beauty and uniqueness. (Please note there will be no living woodworm in the board)
Until recently we were able to source boards between 30cm and 40cm in depth. These were the largest we could find, which are still massive oak chopping boards and look fabulous sat on a kitchen worktop. However, due to demand, and MakeMeSomethingSpecial expanding as a company, we are now able to buy whole trees, giving us the flexibility to select out Crown boards that are enormous in size. Allowing us to get to 50cm in depth, sometimes even larger on a rare occasion. Please feel free to contact us to discuss the size you require.
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.
These large live edge chopping boards are available blank or can also be personalised with your choice of words or lettering. Up to 40 characters on the square edge. Because these boards are so thick – 7cm, the lettering we will carve is huge and really deep – it looks amazing! You can also add carved symbols like hearts, stars and other engraved motifs like zodiac signs. Take a look at our engraving options available to you – Engraving options.
We can also engrave a secret or personal message for you on the underside of your rustic wooden chopping board, making it that little bit extra special. Something like a reading from your wedding day, a favourite poem or quote, something witty or just something secret you don’t want anyone else to see – but you know it’s there.

Our Live edge boards are all made to order. All engravings are in capitals unless otherwise stated. For lower case lettering, this will need to be requested at point of order. All sizes are approximate, especially as this is a large, one-piece board, the width can be anywhere between 30cm and 40cm for the standard size and 40cm and 50cm for the X-Deep. Our large natural edge chopping boards will arrive with no bark still attached to the edge. The edge will be sanded smooth.
Please also be aware, as these are a 1 piece board, they are prone to some movement and can develop some small splits. There can also be evidence of some natural activity of woodworm and holes in the live edge. These will be filled by us using wood-coloured wax. Any splits found during manufacture will be filled by us. Small clear rubber feet will be supplied for all our large live edge boards. We recommend you use these to allow airflow underneath the board to keep the chopping board from warping.
