Sapele & Ash...

Crafting bespoke wooden items is not just a passion; it's a journey of artistry and functionality. When a customer approached us with a request for a unique board, made from a mix of light and dark hardwood our mind took us on a creative journey.

Our process began with careful consideration of the materials. Sapele, known for its rich reddish-brown colour and interlocking grain, would serve as the perfect backdrop for the pattern we had in mind. Paired with English Ash, known for its light colour and prominent grain, we envisioned a striking contrast that would complement any home kitchen.

With precision and expertise, we cut the sapele and ash wood into strips, meticulously arranging them to create the desired pattern. Each piece was carefully glued together, ensuring seamless alignment and a sturdy construction that would withstand the test of time.

Once the glue had set, we embarked on the journey of refinement. Sanding the surface to perfection, we revelled in the transformation as the wood's natural beauty was unveiled. Gradually, the texture became silky smooth under our fingertips, a testament to the craftsmanship poured into every detail.

To protect and enhance the wood, we applied our own food-safe finish, bringing out the depth of colour and grain in the board, making the pattern even more prominent. The result was a chopping board that not only exuded elegance but also promised durability and functionality in equal measure.

As we beheld the finished piece, we couldn't help but feel a sense of pride and satisfaction. This chopping board was more than just a kitchen accessory; it was a work of art, ready to grace the heart of any home.

If you're searching for a bespoke chopping board that embodies both style and substance, look no further.
