“Life isn't about finding yourself. Life is about CREATING YOURSELF” said George Bernard Shaw
Everything you need included. No workshop required...
We are lucky enough to be creating every day, and we know about the happiness of turning a piece of wood into something useful and beautiful.
To mark our 5th anniversary we are introduced the CREATE YOURSELF™ KITS where you can make your own cutting board in Oak & Rope™ style.
The sets come beautifully gift wrapped. Inside you find one oak plank measuring 24 x 15 x 2 cm with one engraved saying *, 1 coarse piece of sandpaper, 1 fine piece of sandpaper, 30 ml bottle of white mineral oil and a piece of rope.
Starting with the coarse sandpaper, sand out any lines on the flat surfaces. Sand all edges and corners till there are no splinters and you feel the board has the right shape. (PS – Our style is normally called ‘sharp-edge-off’, which gives a square finish, but there is nothing stopping you going for a more rounded finish).
Repeat process above with the fine sandpaper till the board is smooth all over.
Apply oil generously with kitchen paper. Let it soak for 2-3 hours, and wipe off any access and let it dry for another 2-3 hours. There is no harm in checking on the board with regular intervals and wiping it more frequently.
When dry, thread the rope through the hole and tie the knot of your preference. The board is now ready to use. Please refer to separate care instructions on the oil bottles. Keep the sandpaper and oil in case the board needs a refresh at a future date.
If you think the board is too pretty to use, you can simply hang it up on the wall as a plaque.
