According to the description in the best selling book this Christmas by Lars Mytting on all things wood chopping (NORWEGIAN WOOD) "Chopping and stacking of wood is a pastime where the world makes sense once more. Because our relationship to fire is so ancient, so universal, it seems that in learning about wood, we can also learn about life..."
Being Norwegian and obsessed with all things wood his book has inspired Jeanette to launch of our green oak wood chopping block, within hours of reading the book!
It is the perfect present for the wood chopper in your life. If you want to give the most meditative and relaxing experience this Christmas, a block of oak is what he needs.
You can buy a plain green oak block, measuring 25 x 25 x 45 cm (the ones on the photograph are only 25 x 25 x 25 cm), or you can add rope handles and even a personalisation.
Over time this will twist and crack a bit, but when used it will turn into 'the woodcutter's own personal monument and the more slashes, cuts, and chips, the more proudly does it stand in the yard', according to the great wood chopper philosopher Mr Mytting himself.
Each block will come with a copy of his book 'Norwegian Wood'.
Engrave it with a child's initials and birthday and it will be a step for the toddler and a side table in later life. Or engrave it with our favourite engraving 'THE NAUGHTY STEP' for all ages!
