this 13.5 inch round cutting board with juice groove is made of solid walnut in Virginia,USA. our hand drawn "fish tribe" graphic is etched in the center to add a simple subtle touch.
fun facts —this high quality walnut gets better with age! with proper care (not putting in the dishwasher) it will take on a darker, richer tone. wood cheeseboards/cutting boards have natural anti-bacterial properties that make them safer than bacteria harboring plastics. wood also helps maintain the life of your knifes.
For an all-natural clean, first try dampening the wood cutting board with a warm cloth and sprinkling coarse salt over it. Cut a lemon in half and scour the cut side of the lemon over the board while slightly squeezing the lemon juice out. Let it stand for five minutes and use a scrub brush to remove the excess.
Our recommendation for occasional use is to oil the board every two months at least, or once or twice a month if used more frequently. We suggest coconut oil! take a chunk and warm it between your clean hands and then rubb it directly on the board will condition it; you will need between a teaspoon and a tablespoon to complete the task. Then, let it sit for a few hours or overnight. Wipe the excess oil off and reapply if needed. The more the wood is dry, the more oil you will need.
