Inspired by the aesthetics & elegance of nature, we create handmade wooden products that are both beautiful and functional.
The Honest Wood Company was created out of a passion for traditional craftsmanship and a love of cooking. We create highly functional, heirloom quality pieces of wooden art that you can use and admire every day.
We set out to make the best chopping board that we could and the only way to achieve this is to use the inherent properties of end-grain wood to construct a solid butcher’s block style cutting board. This process takes far longer than simply flattening a piece of wood and requires an understanding of grain direction, wood expansion and contraction, and attention to detail at every stage.
We use Walnut, Maple, Cherry, and Beech; hand-selecting the highest quality, sustainably managed, wood boards, and matching complementary pieces together to create stunning, unique, patterns.
We love knowing that we have put our heart and soul into every product and our customers can enjoy peace of mind when using their chopping board on a daily basis.
Everything is expertly crafted in our small Essex workshop.
Quality Craftsmanship above all else.
END-GRAIN refers to the direction of the wood grain – this is very important when making a chopping board or butcher’s block. End-grain has many benefits over face-grain: it’s better for your knives, longer-lasting, is self-healing, antibacterial, and looks incredible!
END-GRAIN separates as the knife cuts down but springs back together as you lift the knife. This means that the sharp edge of your knife isn’t forced to cut anything other than your ingredients. This action has the added benefit of squeezing out any food particles, ensuring bacteria doesn’t become embedded in the board’s surface.
