Sustainability. Quality. Craft.
Values that are unfortunately getting shorter and shorter in the current time - cheaper, faster and simply throw away when "the paint has flaked off" - unfortunately this happens more and more often. At Spessartbrett the story begins in nature, in the forest, quite simply. The wood is felled by forest workers, then the saw gate comes before the boards are carefully dried. In the carpenter's workshop the boards are sawn, planed, sanded and the appropriate final sanding is given in the classical craft. Then each Spessart board gets an individual number, beaten by hand with numbers. And we're planting a tree. Right, for each board we plant an oak, and this oak gets the same number as a board. And then the Spessart boards go on the journey to the customers, a good cycle.
Spessart board "Knuck."
Just beautiful. Simply robust.
"He who wants to create properly needs proper tools."
(Quote, my master carpenter, late eighties)
And he wasn't wrong about that.
How often do you use a chopping board? Right, so many times that it's best not to put it away, you always need it anyway.
It not only protects the worktop from damage and mess, but also looks good.
Material oak crosscut. The growth direction of the wood is "standing". This makes the "Knuck" extremely firm and easy on the knife.
A really good tool, the beautiful robust cutting block "Knuck".
Heavy. Big. Good. 6.7 kg.
With recessed grips milled into the sides, for turning, carrying, washing up and turning.
Since we put functionality and quality in the foreground with our products, we think long and hard about it, and test the boards in our own use. We had to decide if we wanted to use beautiful stainless steel feet (and thus take the opportunity to simply turn the board around), or find another way. We found these: Four stable rubber rings with a thickness of 5 mm now allow the use on both sides, offer very good ventilation and have the positive side effect that they compensate for unevenness on the worktop.
We deliberately decided not to use the juice rim on this board. Our experience has shown that it is not so easy to hold the large heavy cutting boards over the sink. Different from the "Diana" board, e.g. to drain or clean fruit and vegetable juices.
And every once in a while the cut material (onions, tomatoes, peppers) gets stuck in the gutter.
- Model Knuck ca: 450 x 500 x 40mm
- Type of wood: oak end-grain wood
- Each Spessart board is given an individual number, manually struck with numbers.
- With recessed grips milled into the sides, for turning, carrying, washing up and turning. Material oak end-grain wood. The growth direction of the wood is "standing". This makes the "Knuck" extremely cut-resistant and gentle to the knife
- Finely ground and pre-treated 2 times with linseed oil
- For each board we plant an oak, and this oak gets the same number as a board.
Each board is unique.
With us you buy unique pieces. Uniques.
What's the matter with you?
Each Spessart board receives a number. This is hammered in by hand with blow numbers. Doesn't have to be, but it gives us pleasure, and you certainly do, too... But the thing with the number has another reason. We plant an oak for every board sold.
We take from nature, we give to nature. This opens and closes the cycle.
And every tree gets the number of the board.
The thing about the trees. How we take from nature, and how we give again.
We are grateful to get from nature. And that we can turn our backs on plastics, cheap products, low-wage production and rainforest clearing. Since we make everything as natural as possible, the cycle begins in an oak forest. There we leave the little trees time to germinate, to develop. And that's where they get "their number". In order to prevent wild browsing and other influences, we give the trees about a year to bring them to their final place. This is either in the great outdoors, during reforestation, or on one of our woods.
Each board comes with care instructions. But so that you can find out what real wood boards like or don't like before you buy, here are our care tips to download, or take a look at the YouTube video. Very easy to find here on the tab "YouTube Video".

We like to work with our hands. The selection of woods for our products is the first step, an important one.
The products take shape step by step and are often touched, edited, examined and tested. With us "nothing falls out of the machine" and "nothing is sent directly".
Alone the perception of the smells, the different woods. Try it yourself: cherry, oak and nut ... smell in the woods, trees and woods. The different weights and hardnesses of the woods, the processing of these (in the relatively soft cherry you have to pay much more attention with the stroke numbers, such as the hard beech).
From the purchase of wood to processing and shipping. It is a great pleasure for us to see and feel the whole process.
And because we plant an oak tree for every sold board, it completes the whole experience even better. We take and we give. And you can experience a very good time, inside and outside.
Our claim was, is and remains, quality. Good quality.
For us this means solid wood, sustainability, and long pleasure for our customers with our products.
Like us humans, our products age, and that's where the beauty and the good lies: we mature.
Everyone can throw away, and this is unfortunately practiced too often. Hardly anyone repairs more, constantly new is bought.
A customer buys for use, which one is this, the customer determines himself. We offer the benefit that our products are stable, robust and natural. And that solid wood gets an even more beautiful character with age. If it gets a quirk, you can bring everything back with no problems with some sandpaper and oil.
For many years, the idea (this would go beyond the scope here, but we will take a little shorter ...) on quality and sustainability matured. To create things with the hands and to drive them out.
A joinery / wood mechanic apprenticeship 30 years ago probably set the foundation for the Spessart board.
Collaboration with a joinery company in the Spessart, which has existed for over 100 years and is now friends and partners, was probably a coincidence.
Hand in hand, the Spessart board was created based on experience, tradition and looking to the future.
Made in Germany, Spessart.
