An expertly crafted chestnut wood cutting board from Hida-Takayama, Gifu Prefecture.

£91 per item

Hida-Takayama is a centre of wooden furniture production in Japan and has a well-established reputation for expert carpentry. The predominantly mountainous area of Hida is densely forested and home to hundreds of tree species. These cutting boards were made of kuri, chestnut wood, just one of the wood types available in the local forests, and show off the wood’s distinctive properties. Each cutting board is carefully handmade and coated with perilla oil to highlight the one-of-a-kind woodgrain of the tree from which it is made.
Chestnut wood is known to be highly resistant to weathering and can be easily bent. It has a light to medium brown colour with a slightly coarse grain and it is often used for door frames, roof beams and furniture.

Handwashing recommended.
Dry thoroughly after washing to prevent mould.

Size: L50 cm x W18.5 cm
