Our chopping boards are now available with the additional touch of personalised handwriting, from anyone in the family!

Slicing freshly-baked bread, chopping vegetables and serving cheese all becomes a more pleasurable experience with my handcrafted oak chopping board on your kitchen countertop. These stunning personalised gifts are one of the most versatile items I handcraft at Hugo's Workshop as they're perfectly thoughtful for both men and women to celebrate absolutely any occasion and suit absolutely any kitchen.  

Whoever you are treating, they will love the way it looks and the feel of the warm wood under the hand. Sturdy and reliable, this oak chopping board makes preparing delicious, nutritious meals for the whole family extra easy and enjoyable.  


  • For children's handwriting, get your child (or children) to write and/or draw their message or pictures on a piece of white paper. Use unlined paper if possible and ideally written with a black pen (these two 'rules' are not essential, I understand that it is not easy to get kids to write and draw on demand!)
  • For adult and memorial handwriting, any clear sample of writing you have to hand can work!
  • Take a photo of the writing with your smartphone. It's fine if you send over several photos. I can cut and paste, and stitch things together 
  • Either upload your photo/s when you place your online order or respond to your order confirmation email with the photo (or photos) attached.

You can also add names, dates, places and events, or combine the handwriting with other wording in a font of your choice. 


Large – 40cm x 30cm x 4cm

Small – 30cm x 20cm x 4cm

If you haven't used a high quality wooden chopping board at home before, there is nothing to worry about. To clean it you should scrub it with hot water and soap. Rinse and dry thoroughly. 

To oil, apply a generous amount of oil with a clean rag or kitchen paper. Leave to absorb for an hour or so and wipe off any surplus. The frequency of application depends on how you use your board. If you use it every day (which you should), the saying goes: "Oil it once a day for a week, once a week for a month, once a month for a year, and then once a year for the rest of your life..."

To eliminate garlic, onion or any other smells from your board you can rub it with coarse salt, baking soda, lemon or vinegar, leave for a few minutes and rinse.
Do not leave anything moist on the board for a long time, ie. cheese overnight, as the moisture gets into the wood and stains can develop. If any dark marks should develop on your board (although they shouldn’t if you have been oiling it), you can try rubbing it with fresh rhubarb. Do not dry it in hot sunshine or close to your AGA. Never submerge cutting boards in a sink of water! Wood is porous and will soak up water causing the cutting board to crack when it dries.


Once you have sent in your photos, wait a day or two and you will find a digital preview of your design drop into your inbox

Tell me what you think. Would you like any of it to be made bigger or smaller? Do you want it moved to the left, or the right or centered? Just let me know and I will make the changes you require. It is my mission to get the final product exactly as you imagined it (or better!). 

Once you have approved the design, I will engrave it, sand it down and then lovingly oil or varnish it to bring out the the beauty of the grain of the wood and of course the gorgeous design.
