Live edge charcuterie board, table runner, serving platter and cheese bo

This beautiful charcuterie board is made from ash.  It measures approximately 100cm x 30cm x 2.5cm.  


It can be used as a:


* chopping board, 

* serving platter, 

* pizza slice board,

* cheese board

* outdoor oven serving platter, or

* a beautiful stove top cover 


Live edge (otherwise known as natural edge or waney edge) charcuterie boards make a perfect gift for the cook in your life, the foodie who enjoys presenting food beautifully, and the chef who demands only the best tools in their kitchen or for their outdoor wood fired oven.


The picture shows the specific board you will receive.


The board is finished using my own blend of beeswax, made from local hives, and mineral oil to give a beautiful protective finish.


I can make a board to meet your exact requirements - different shapes and sizes are available and I would be happy to send images.  Please feel free to message me with any specific questions.


My policies – please read before ordering (takes about 2 minutes)


It’s important to me that you are satisfied with your purchase, because I make everything from scratch.  I don’t hide behind pages of terms and conditions but sometimes things go wrong, and it helps to be clear how, together, we can avoid this, or sort things out.  Behind all of what follows, we’re only human, and only want to provide a good service.  


If you place an order I will assume you have read and are OK with the following.


Who I am 


My name is David Swallow, you’ll normally deal with me.  I trade through Silverwood Bespoke, which is a trading name of Silverwood Marketing Limited, Registered office address 6a Church Street, Cottingham, Leicestershire, England, LE16 8XG.  Company Registration Number 11390958.  When you make a purchase, you are buying from Silverwood Marketing Limited. ‘I’ or ‘we’ means the company.


Being clear what you have ordered, what to expect and when


Every item I make starts with the raw wood, which means it takes time.  No two items are the same, for example the colour may vary due to how the wood absorbs the finish, sizes may differ slightly, so:


•    Where I refine an existing item, for example charcuterie boards or table runners, I will send before and after photos to show you what you will receive

•    I will provide approximate dimensions – if you need something to be an exact size please let me know when you place your order.  Sizes may vary slightly if, for example, a knot on the edge of the board may affect quality of the finish

•    I will send pictures of similar items to illustrate the approximate end finish.  Every piece of wood absorbs wood treatment differently, and photos only give an indication.  


I will give an approximate indication of when you should expect your order, but as each item is unique some take a little longer.  I would rather take more time to give you something beautiful than rush things.  If you need something by a specific date I’ll do my best but sadly cannot legislate for postal delays.


Wood ‘moves and breathes’, which means it may change shape slightly


Wood is an organic material which absorbs and releases moisture.  When it comes in your home, it may be substantially warmer/dryer (for example central heating or if you have an Aga).  Wood is also made up of fibres which are held together under stresses.  As wood is joined together these factors mean joints may flex, boards may not be 100% flat or level, and small cracks may appear.  


Handmade wooden items do not behave the same as mass-produced furniture.  These can add to the beauty of your purchase, so please expect some variance and movement; do not expect uniform, identical items.


We can mitigate some of this if you require – for example adjustable feet can be added to boards.


Wood is naturally imperfect


Timber is a natural product, it has woodgrain, knot holes and natural imperfections. Wooden boards split as they age, this is not a fault.  A knot hole is not a fault. I may distress timber by sanding it to look ‘natural’ or to make it look aged and imperfect, this is intentional and is not a fault and reason to return an item.


Refunds, exchanges and guarantee


Every item is handmade and unique.  I’m sorry but I can’t refund, exchange or replace the item if you change your mind.


For larger items over £200 (such as furniture) I may request a non-re
