Our live edge locally sourced elm wood blocks are all individual works of art! All cut, prepared and oiled by hand at our mill. It is safe to say we love nature and do not want to see any of it wasted! Our gorgeous wood blocks have so many uses, from a food safe chopping board, to a serving platter, maybe a pot stand or indeed the best podium for the finest Scottish whisky!
At our mill each board has been hot iron branded by hand, with our iconic marque, the symbol of a Prickly Thistle Rebel!
Dimensions - 32cm x 34/40cm - please note all are unique wood works of art, we strive to not waste any natural materials and celebrate the live edge finish. This means some aspects of the rectangular block vary in dimensions.
Danish Oil Finish - each wood block has been hand finished with a natural organic wood finish. It is 100% food safe, non toxic linseed oil with no solvents, metal driers and VOC free. This oil continues to be made as it was in the 18th century.
All woodblocks have been cut from locally sourced elm timber. As each length is unique, it means that each woodblock is also unique in shape and natural markings. Finally each woodblock will be stowed in one of our organic cotton tote bags as an extra layer of protection.
I was blown away by the quality of this woodblock. It is solid and weighty, so much more than I imagined from the picture. The beauty of it is unmatched by any multiple fast produced product on the market. This needs to be displayed at all times and not stored away until a use is called upon....no, it is a work of artful nature that I will proudly display and use for my lifetime and pass on to next generation.
