OAK WOOD CHOPPING BOARDS

Oak chopping board

Oak is renowned for its strength, hardness and durability - so it makes the ideal choice of material for a chopping board.

Oak chopping boards are produced in different shapes and are available in light oak and dark oak.

However, as with mahogany, there’s a limited choice of oak chopping boards available - but if you find one that appeals to you, it’s certain to be a purchase you won’t regret.

The oak is recognised as the national tree of England and was also sacred to the Anglo-Saxons and Druids.

It’s renowned for its strength and endurance, qualities which make it a fantastic choice for a wooden chopping board.

It’s been used for centuries for building houses and great halls - and it was of course the wood of choice for building many ships, including those of Horatio Nelson.

There are estimated to be more than 600 varieties of oak trees around the world.

It’s important to keep an oak chopping board clean and dry when not in use and it should be oiled on a regular basis to keep in tip-top condition.

On thing’s for sure - the toughness and durability of an oak board means it will stand up to whatever the avid kitchen gourmet can throw at it - whether you’re chopping meats or vegetables and fruit.

Everyone knows oak trees have been known to live for centuries - you won’t be needing an oak chopping or cutting board for that long, but the least you know it’s likely to stand the test of time!
