Borough Rectangular Chopping Board - Seasoned


Borough is made from ash. Usually, it’s oak that we turn to for exposed wood, but it’s just too hard for a chopping board – it’ll blunt your knife quickly. Ash is much softer and just as food-safe. It will pick up marks over time, so if you want to avoid that lived-in look, use it for serving and displaying only.


The ash is protected with IsoGuard®, our timber treatment oil. Think of it as a defence barrier, but one that you’d never know was there. Like ash, it’s also safe to prepare food on. IsoGuard® comes in a few finishes; Seasoned gives Borough a subtle, silvered colour – like naturally weathered timber.

Size and shape

Borough comes in two sizes: a long, thin board, and this wider rectangular one. Because it gives you a more practical space, this is the better of the two if you want to use it for chopping. But, it works for larger serving dishes too.

Design detail

There’s a small loop on Borough’s handle in case you want to hang it up, which is made from a natural, brown twine because it goes with the organic feel of the timber. The only other detail is a subtle letter ‘N’ – the Neptune mark – that’s lasered into one side of the board near the bottom.

care guide

Hot, soapy water is the best way to clean Borough. Just don’t soak it, put it in a dishwasher, or leave liquids on its surface for a long time because they could damage the wood. And, as good as IsoGuard® is, staining on the board can still happen: a sign that it’s well-used and much-loved.

When it comes to smaller items, we don't hang around.

With smaller designs we tend to use one of three couriers; the three that we think are the best. It means that we can get your order out to you sooner. You’ll receive an email from our delivery partner to confirm your delivery date within 24 hours of us dispatching the item (or items).

No-quibble returns

We believe that returns should be easy, that’s why we approach them with a ‘no quibble’ mindset. We offer a free returns service on accessories and all the details on what you need to do will be on your delivery note. Just make sure you keep hold of the packaging.
