Bradfield chopping board – large


Our large live-edge wooden serving and chopping board is named after the ancient Suffolk woodland where its pale ash timber was grown. Like all of Hyrst’s homewares, the Bradfield Chopping Board is handcrafted in the workshop at HMP Warren Hill, just down the road from our studio on the Suffolk coast.

Is your kitchen lacking a live edge? The Bradfield Chopping Board, which can also be used as a cheese board, charcuterie board, meze board or as a trivet mat for hot pots and pans, retains its waney bark.

The chopping board is hewn from a single solid slice of English ash. The timber used in the board was cut and dried by Suffolk Wildlife Trust at Bradfield Wood in central Suffolk; felled as part of the Trust’s work to conserve the woodland that has been coppiced continually since 1252.

We deliver the solid ash wood to HMP Warren Hill, also in Suffolk, where it is shaped by hand by prisoners in the woodshop. Income paid by Hyrst to Warren Hill is used to fund training qualifications that will upskill residents in preparation for their release.

Each board is unique; please note that the grain pattern, edge shape and colour may vary from that shown in the photographs.


All of our chopping and serving boards are finished with a food-safe wax oil, handmade in the UK from natural oils and pure waxes.

To clean your board, wipe with a damp cloth. Don’t soak it in water, and avoid putting it in the dishwasher. The natural fibres of the timber will fluff slightly after contact with water; over time, the board can be buffed back to a smooth state with a high-grit sandpaper.

Similarly, if the board dries out a little over time, additional coats of food board oil or wax will keep it sweet for years to come.
