Bamboo & Slate Boards
Frequently Asked Questions
Find quick answers to our most bamboo & slate board queries.
Can a board be used as a hamper?
Our boards can be used as a base for a hamper, which also works as an extra present. They're ideal for cheeseboards, charcuterie boards, and other food hampers. Once you've arranged the gift on the surface, use a shrink-wrap bag to secure the items to the board.
Can I engrave your slate boards?
Yes, you can! Engraving slate is a popular way to create signage, cheese boards, slate gifts and more. While we don't offer engraving in-house, many customers purchase our slateboards and engrave them themselves. Our bamboo cutting boards can be engraved too!
Are slate boards food safe?
Yes, slate is considered a safe material for food contact. It is non-porous, non-toxic, and easy to clean. However, it is important to remember that food may stain the surface, so it is best to regularly apply Pure Mineral Oil and clean after use.
What is Pure Mineral Oil used for?
Pure mineral oil is a colourless, odourless and food-safe oil that is fantastic for rejuvenating and enhancing natural materials. It's ideal for slateboards, cheese boards, bamboo boards and more.
