Hand-carved Breadboards are the ideal present for weddings, anniversaries, couples moving into a new house etc. I personalise them by adding names, dates or whatever inscription you wish.
I turn them on a Lathe, then carve your message into them by hand, using traditional methods and tools.
With the advent of the home Bread making machine, more and more people are making their own Bread, and what's nicer than having your own personal Breadboard to cut it on?
They are fully functional, designed to be used, and will give many years of service.The lettering is lower than the cutting surface, and so doesn't get damaged when you cut bread on the boards.
As wood is naturally anti-bacterial, breadboards usually just need a wipe with a damp cloth after tipping the crumbs off.
Size is approximately 12"x1-1.25" thick, and they all come with a Crumb ring, which apart from being useful, is a traditional feature of Breadboards.
Over time the Breadboards mellow down to a beautiful golden colour.
Naturally each Board is different and therefore unique to the couple concerned.
A note on wood colour: Sycamore varies from light to dark in colour, and can have streaks and blotches of colour running through it. This is normal and doesn't affect the function of the boards. I can't always guarantee that the boards will be free of knots, but will keep them down to a minimum.
