Chopping Board

Level: Easy

Who doesn’t need a chopping board? When we were children, we used to eat fairly quickly to check out the pictures on our plates – if your plate is made from driftwood you get a chance to count the tree rings and discover how old your plate is! 


1. Choose a driftwood log and make sure it’s not rotten and dried properly

2. Use a hand saw (or circular saw if available) to cut the log into discs

3. Sand the discs (start with rough sandpaper and gradually move to fine sandpaper)

4. If you’re aiming for a very smooth surface, use a towel to wet the surface, then leave it out to dry overnight. Sand the board again with fine sandpaper the next day.

5. Apply food safe oil or wax
