Hand made end grain chopping boards. The boards take time to craft, some use reclaimed materials – the former dancefloor of the Marconi social club for example. They have weight and heft, they have value and significance, with care they’ll last a lifetime. Jamie Dobson has always been a maker. Before he was school age his grandfather bought him tools and taught him to sharpen chisels. He made crude aeroplanes. He's now a designer working on projects from architectural to advertising. He also loves to teach. Making chopping boards ‘seriously’ developed as a project to stay sane during the first Covid-19 lockdown – producing something tangible as a counterpoint to Zoom meetings.
