All of our products are handcrafted with love and care in our workshop to bring you the best products available.
We handcraft our products locally, just outside Bath in England using locally sourced wood, where possible.
Our products are made using the highest quality hardwoods, they are made to be used and will last a lifetime.
Wooden It Be Great was created by Roger and Ginny Watson who live just outside Bath in Somerset.
Before moving to Bath, they lived in the Lake District in Cumbria where Roger, a talented carpenter, worked mainly on restoration projects. While there they went on a bread baking course and Roger continues to bake bread at every opportunity – trying out all sorts of different recipes! But not only is he passionate about baking bread, he also has a passion for all things wooden! Unable to find a good bread board in any of the local shops, he decided to make one himself. Friends loved what they saw and orders started coming in….. and this is how Wooden It Be Great started!
Our range of products is designed with functionality and versatility in mind so as well as bread boards, the range now includes chopping boards, cheese boards, pizza boards, meat boards, napkin rings, cooling trays, wooden crates in a variety of sizes, utensil holders and serving platters – a great way to prepare food and take it straight to the table. It’s all about sharing and enjoying great food together!
All of our products are handcrafted with love in our workshop and finished to the highest standard. The boards are all made of hardwood, such as oak and coated with linseed oil. This protects and seals the boards – so they should be used everyday – they are made to last!
And if you don’t see something you like here, contact us - we can make you any size of board you require.
Wood is an excellent choice for chopping boards and having the right equipment is absolutely essential. Wood not only includes its own antibacterial properties, but it has many other advantages, including beauty. Wood cutting boards protect your knives and don’t dull them like ceramic or glass cutting boards and it is completely biodegradable and renewable.
Our boards are very easy to maintain & will give you years of use. They are treated with Linseed Oil before leaving our workshop which seals the wood, leaving a natural protection.
• wash your board with warm soapy water
• allow it to dry naturally
• submerge your board in a sink full of water as it can warp
• put it in a dishwasher, a microwave or near direct heat
Application of Oil
Cleaning your board will remove some of the oil from the wood. If your board starts to look dry, apply an oil, such as Linseed Oil, over the entire surface of the board using a soft cloth. Rub the oil into the wood and let it absorb. Finally remove any excess oil with a cloth. You will need to re-oil from time to time, depending on how often you use your board.
