Personalise a hardwood chopping serving platter board to make an ideal engagement or wedding present.
The text is engraved across two lines in the centre. On the first line, please write what two first names you would like. On the bottom line, please write the date (please leave blank if not required). There is an option to have a personalised message along the bottom of the board around the edge such as 'Congratulations on your engagement' (which will always be in upper case).
The boards are made of wood from a rubber tree and are eco-friendly as it is only used when the trees have finished production and are felled to be replaced by new trees.
Approximate size: 30 x 30 x2 cm
Suggested occasions: wedding engagement, birthdays, housewarming, gift to your hosts, Mother's day Father's day, Christmas or a gift to yourself.
Caring for your chopping board
“Is this wooden board dishwasher safe?” The simple answer is “No!”.
No wooden products should be subjected to the harsh environment found in a dishwasher, with its caustic solution and intense heat. “How do I clean my board?” Quite simply you should only rinse your board, and you can use a little washing up liquid. Never leave a board to soak in the sink. “Why?” If you look closely you will see the board is made up of strips of wood called staves. These staves are joined together with glue under immense pressure. Looked after well your board should give many years’ good service. Being a natural plant based product if left in the sink to soak, it will absorb water, the wood will swell up and expand. When the wood dries it will then contract, and eventually the board will split on the ends where the staves meet.
So the best way is to just rinse it and stand it up to dry naturally with the staves running horizontally.
If you have one of our beechwood boards, you may wish to give it a light wipe over from time to time with a little vegetable oil (not olive oil).
Chopping onions and garlic will likely leave an unwanted odour. The simplest way to remove this is to give the board a wipe over with lemon juice. It works on your hands, too.
