We end up with a lot of off cuts that are generally to small to use. Rather than discarding these pieces we now turn them into thin and generally smaller sized chopping boards at discounted prices. Due to their thinness they can be more prone to warping/cracking so are not covered by a guarantee. Keeping the boards as dry as possible will help mitigate any movement.
What's all the fuss about 'End-Grain'?
END GRAIN CHOPPING BOARDS
An end grain cutting boards surface is up to one and a half times harder than a standard "face grain" cutting board alternative.
The orientation of the woodfibres mean that a knife will slide between fibres rather than cutting them. This means the board surface will last longer.
Regular treatment with our Oil and Wax will cause the board to "self-heal". This will impel the wood fibres to close together around most scratches on the surface; almost bringing back the original surface finish.
LOOKING AFTER YOUR BOARD
Our chopping boards require monthly maintenance in order to keep the looking and working their best.
Applying our chopping board oil monthly prevents your board from drying out and potentiality cracking after repeated washes.
For further protection a special blend on mineral oil and beeswax is applied to the surface. This makes the surface further resilient to water as well as restoring the glossy finish.
Mineral Oil and Chopping Board Wax is also available to buy to ensure your board stays in the best condition.
