Cutting Board Information

Welcome to our Cutting Board Information page. 


How they are made:

Our cutting boards and other kitchen decor items are built using high-grade hardwoods such as Walnut, Maple, and Cherry. Once our lumber has been surfaced and cut to size, we join the pieces together using FDA approved, food-safe, glues and leave them clamped for many hours. The process after this point changes depending on the boards design but it basically involves a lot of sanding, planning, and conditioning. Check out our Instagram page for videos showing the complete process. 
Once the board is finished being built, we condition them with Walrus Oil. This premium mix of Coconut Oil, Mineral Oil, Vitamin E, and Beeswax is completely food-safe, free of toxins, and will keep your cutting board looking great.


How to wash them:

These boards cannot be machine washed. Please only wash with warm soap and water with a towel dry immediately after. We recommend standing or leaning the board on its edge while drying, this will help prevent it from cupping (warping) over time. If you used your board to cut fish or other strong smelling meats, you can use half of a lemon to rub the board clean, this is a great natural way to prevent smells from lingering. A washing machine will damage the cutting board. 

How to maintain them:

A well maintained board can last decades. Regular maintenance includes rinsing well after each use and reconditioning every few weeks (or as needed). We recommend you apply Walrus Oil to your board every 4-6 weeks. Applying a high grade cutting board oil will keep your board looking fresh, lock out moisture, and help reduce the chance of bacteria building up. Finally, every 6-12 months, you can use 220 grit sand paper to lightly smooth the top finish and then reapply oil.
