About The Wood Life Project

We are a wife and husband team and parents to 2 young boys. The decision to create our company was born out of concerns we had for the future of our planet and the legacy which was being left for our boys.

We decided to create a brand with vision to end of the plastic revolution and the throw-away mindset of our generation. The Wood Life Project produces beautiful, innovative and practical wooden items which are used in our homes every day.

Eco-friendly, plastic-free, sustainable, British-made and British-sourced materials go into all our products, right down to the packaging.

All products are designed by us in our rural Norfolk workshop and manufactured in the UK only.

Our wood is sourced from the UK only. Our sawmill adheres to EU Timber Regulation rules and so we can have the confidence that all the wood we use is legally felled. They also hold the Forest Stewardship Council® (FSC®) certification and the Grown in Britain (GiB) certification. We are GiB certified and FSC certified too, and we are able to supply products with those accreditations.

Our product range is based around the family home, with the emphasis being on family mealtimes. The range is ever evolving, as we continue to innovate.


How should I care for my item?

Our products are practical and suitable for everyday use, and the better you care for your product, the longer it will last and stay looking and feeling beautiful.

As wood is a natural material, it is hygroscopic, meaning that it will change and absorb moisture according to its environment, meaning you should not leave your product next to heat sources nor in damp conditions.

Our wood is naturally antibacterial and self-sterilises, meaning that not only is your product eco-friendly, the care of it is too.

Enjoy with hot food, but do not use in the microwave.

General cleaning

  • Handwash in light-soapy water, but do not leave submerged in water – no expensive and wasteful dishwashers
  • Dry well with a cloth and leave to air dry in a drying rack – do not lay flat as it may encourage warping
  • Oil regularly to help avoid stains and cracks

For a deeper clean

  • Mix one tablespoon of bicarbonate of soda, one tablespoon of salt and one tablespoon of water to form a paste (for an extra-powerful clean you can add a little white vinegar and lemon juice).
  • Give your product a good scrub and then follow the general cleaning instructions above

Oiling and maintenance

Each month, or when your product appears a little dry, it is time to oil your product.

  • Ensure the product is completely dry
  • Apply a food safe mineral oil or wax to your product using a lint-free cloth or kitchen roll, ensuring full coverage.
  • Leave for a few hours and wipe off any excess.

We recommend using a food-safe mineral oil or wax, coconut oil, linseed or walnut oil (be careful with allergies!). Never use olive or vegetable oils as they can turn rancid.

What if my product warps?

Wood is naturally pretty porous and when one side of a product is exposed to water and the other is not (such as when it is drying flat on a surface), the wet side will expand and the dry side stays put.

Do not be tempted to submerge in water or steam it to try to force it back to shape as this could ruin your product completely and may split in two.

  • Using a wet sponge, wipe the concave side only
  • Leave your product wet side down for a few days.

That is all, it will do the trick.
