About Our End Grain Boards:
To achieve the End Grain, the wood is cut into strips, glued together and then cut again anywhere from .5" to 3.0", depending on the thickness desired. It is then flipped on its side to expose the End Grain and then glued together once more. Once the surface is finished, the End Grain makes the board more durable and easier on the knives, minimizing how often they need to be sharpened. With proper care, these boards can be used for generations to come.
All of our Cutting Boards are assembled with FDA approved materials and are sealed with natural beeswax and food-safe mineral oil leaving a silky wax barrier that locks in moisture to prevent drying and cracking.
The primary wood used in this board is Canary wood, and the rest is made up of Bubinga, Cherry, and Mahogany.
