The simple yet elegant design of this cutting board blends seamlessly with any kitchen decor.
This is an 'end grain' cutting board. This means it is created by positioning the end grain of the wood as the surface. This gives the board great durability while being struck by chopping utensils. The wood's fibers enjoy an almost "self-healing" quality when cut at this angle. Additionally, the arrangement is better for blades; end grain boards tend to dull them at a slower rate.
The hardwoods in this board Black Walnut, and Hard Maple, are among the most durable and will last for years even under heavy use.They are assembled using a wood glue that is FDA approved for indirect food contact.The board is sanded to a very fine finish before the application of a food grade mineral oil.This finish not only brings out the beauty of the wood, but also helps prevent staining and absorption of food odors and bacteria.
Care is easy and quick. In the event of a deep scratch, for instance, one can simply sand lightly and reapply a light coat of mineral oil to restore the product's original sheen. We will include instructions with each order that detail how owners can easily maintain their purchases.
As all of our products are handcrafted with unique pieces of hardwood, please be aware that there'll be slight pattern and color variations from the individual demonstration photos in our online store and from the products you may have seen in person at a local festival market.
