100% Naturally Colored, Wooden Cutting Board
This Edge Grain cutting board is pre-engraved on both sides with a veggie theme on one side and a meat theme on the other side. Now you can use the same cutting board to prepare meat and vegetables! A variety of naturally colored domestic and exotic wood species are used in this board. Ideal for all cutting tasks- one can use this as a charcuterie board or for more hefty daily cutting operations due to the edge grain orientation which prevents heavy scratches from marring the surface.
Wood Species Used: Maple, Walnut, Teak, Purpleheart, Goncalo Alves and Sapelle.
Dimensions: 14-1/2" x 8" x 1-5/8"
Every plank of wood has been meticulously handpicked from lumberyards which adhere to sustainable sourcing methods. Once milled and squared up, the various wood species are ripped up into identically sized strips before glued and clamped for 12 hours. After surfacing with a drum sander, the edges are rounded on the table router. What follows is a thorough sanding process where all surfaces are sanded from 80 grit to 220 grit prior to being wet sanded to further remove the raised grain. This prevents the cutting board from becoming rough when exposed to moisture. All of our cutting boards are soaked in a food-safe mineral oil which saturates the grain fibers and prevents external moisture from penetrating the surface.
What is an edge grain cutting board?
Edge grain cutting boards are constructed with horizontally oriented grain fibers similar to face grain cutting boards, but are far more resilient in terms of scratching, Edge grain cutting boards even require less upkeep than end grain cutting boards which make them equally sought after by professional chefs. Since the face grain and end grain is not exposed to air/moisture, edge grain boards are less prone to warping and cracking.
