END GRAIN

 The harder end grain of wood resists cuts and scratches while the orientation of the fibers help to preserve the cutting edge of your knife.  Regularly refreshing your board will help preserve the colour of the wood and keep your board looking its best.  (The oil causes a swelling effect of the grain which effectively heals the board - diminishing the appearance of any minor scratches that might be visible.)

FACE GRAIN

 For serving foods or using as a table centre piece.... FACE GRAIN is very appropriate.

Designed to highlight the natural beauty and character of the wood grain, Face Grain Boards are a stylish addition to any home. When used as a cheese board, serving board or charcuterie tray, Face Grain Boards are perfect for adding a natural elegance to your next meal or event.  Regular cleaning and refreshing will help preserve the natural beauty of these boards.  

Caring for Your Board

Clean using a damp cloth.  Never immerse your board in water. 

To maintain the vibrant colours in your board, periodically carefully clean and then coat with either food grade mineral oil (available in your local pharmacy) or a beeswax paste.  (We do NOT recommend vegetable or olive oil as these oils will turn rancid over time.)  While how often you need to do this will depend on how much you use your board, refreshing at least every couple of months will ensure a great looking product for years to come.
