Chopping / Serving / Cheese - Boards

Dark Hardwood

Repurposed tropical hardwood makes for a premium surface, we have used boards like this daily for over eight years and they are still going strong. Finished with a black antique iron handle and a coat of food-safe mineral oil.

£12-15 - Medium Hardwood - approx. 34.5 x 19 x 2.5cm excluding handle - chopping / serving / charcuterie board.

£10-12 - Serving Board Hardwood - approx. 34.5 x 12 (min) x 2.5cm excluding handle - serving / charcouterie boards.


Beech is another excellent choice for chopping boards being highly resilient to cuts and scratches. The wood comes from a sutainably managed European source.

£15 Beech - 34 x 23.5 x 2cm - chopping board.


Oak makes a good surface for a serving or charcouterie board, though is somewhat less resilient for continued use as a chopping board, locally sourced wood.

£10 Oak - 33 x 16.5 x 2cm excluding handle - serving / charcuterie board.

How to buy: I have a small stock of ready engraved boards and can engrave others to order within about 7 days, just pick which design/s you want on the board. Please with your details and the board pattern you want. By default the engravings and handles are placed as shown in the examples on this page.

Delivery within or collection to / from Great Paxton. Payment by bank transfer or in cash at delivery / pick-up.

Board Care

Use the plain side of the board for cutting to preserve the engraving and use the engraved side as a serving board or for display. Wash as usual with a little washing up liquid, don't soak them or put them in the dishwasher.

A coat of food safe "chopping board oil" once or twice a year for hardwood boards and every month or two for other woods will keep them looking good and protect the wood.

"Lindisfarne Font"

Simple Pachstone, a deeper engraving with less ornate letters

Simple Pachstone + 1000 logo

I have taken these letters from the Lindisfarne Gospels to make a sort-of font with a few modifications so they look better in black and white and are more readable. The Lindisfarne Gospels were written around 700 A.D. and so represent an approximately contemporary script that would have been familiar around 1020 when work began on Great Paxton's church.

"Pachstone" was the first recorded name for what is now Great Paxton and is how it is referred to in the Doomsday (Domesday) Book. There was only one Paxton in those days, Little Paxton as a separate village didn't arrive for another couple of hundred years.
