Hand-made in Ireland

Primitive Boards are boards with a mission: these boards are hand-crafted in the Dublin Mountains and for every board sold, one new tree is planted.

Primitive Boards are hand crafted chopping boards, serving boards and cheese boards in Dublin, Ireland by me, Radek Mara with the intent to create serving and chopping boards so good, you’ll never want to serve or cook with any other board. They are tested and co-developed by professional chefs for durability and size.

The name Primitive comes from my childhood nickname I was given by my friends as we spent most of our childhood in the nearby forest building tree houses, carving simple cutting boards and watching wildlife. 

30 years later I returned back to carving wood as a way to focus on creating natural, sustainable gifts.

Made to last a lifetime

We believe that truly sustainable products are only the ones that you don't have to replace. That is why we only sell pieces we are confident that will last a lifetime. However if your Primitive Board gets damaged we will fix it or replace it free of charge.

Register your chopping board HERE

*To avail of your lifetime warranty register your board here within 1 month from purchasing and we promise to repair or replace your chopping board should something happen to it. The board's serial no. can be found embossed on the board as well as product label. If you want your cutting board or serving board to last a lifetime you need to follow our Care Instructions. Lifetime warranty covers  splitting & warping on chopping boards and butcher blocks. It does not cover serving boards and it does not cover damage due to misuse of the product.

Purchased mine a year ago and it still looks as good as when we received it! Can’t recommend primitive boards enough, each board is one of a kind and we love serving food on our one, its beauty and craftsmanship is always admired by our guests!
