Use and care
Wood is a natural material and tends to move, shrink, expand even after it has been cut, dried, milled and finished. The best way to limit the effects of such movements is by
- Drying the board well after each cleansing with a clean cloth or paper towel
- Applying a natural, food-safe finish every few months (we recommend mineral oil or butchers block conditioner)
While you can be assured that your cutting board is made using glues and finishes that meet or exceed FDA standards for food safety. It is however, not dishwasher safe; the excess heat inside of dishwashers may affect the glues adversely causing failure of product.
Your cutting board is made with some of the finest raw materials available.
Cherry – American Cherry tree has a soft, warm and perfect texture that is light brown in color. The cherry wood in your cutting board is rift-sawn, which results in the straight grain that helps lead the eye across the length
Walnut – A classic, American Black Walnut is a highly regarded and sourced wood for its dark brown, almost chocolate color.
Brazilian Purple Heart – A tropical exotic, its natural purple color is almost too good to be true. It is also a very dense wood, lending some of its heft to keep the cutting board stable
Maple – One of the finest hardwoods in the world with a creamy white color and is often used in fine quality furniture
