Cutting and Serving Boards

by Contractor John

I take great pride in making the finest cutting and serving boards. With proper care, these boards will serve you for decades of use.

Cutting Boards

Wood cutting boards differ from serving boards in a couple of ways. The types of wood used, the orientation of the wood and the thickness.

  • Types of Wood

        Quality cutting boards are mainly made from Hard Maple, Walnut, and Cherry. These are closed grain hardwoods which protect bacteria from getting into the wood.

  • Orientation

        There are 3 orientations of the wood used when you are making cutting boards. Face grain, which is the most attractive, but also the most prone to cut marks and warping, edge grain which             hides cut marks much better and is less prone to warping and end grain. End grain boards have the tree ring edge up, used for the cutting surface and create an almost self-healing cutting               surface. Boards made with edge grain are the most expensive.

  • Thickness

       Cutting boards vary in thickness from to 2. The thinner the boards the less it will cost, and the more prone it will be to cracking and warping. My recommendation is to buy a board in the 1          to 2 thickness range.

Congratulations on your new wood cutting or charcuterie board. With a little love and attention, your boards will give you decades of service.

Your board comes to you pre-treated with our food grade mineral oil and bees wax blend, also known as CJs Wood Butter. But we recommend you show your new board some love by applying a fresh coat of CJs Wood Butter into its pores, when it arrives home!

Dos and Donts

How To Show Your Board Some Love:

1. If there are any stains on your board, cover the stain with salt, and using a damp cloth, scrub in a circular motion until stain is removed. You can also use a lemon half to scrub with.

2. Wash your board with warm water and mild soap.

3. Allow to air dry completely.

4. Using the applicator that came with CJs Wood Butter or a clean dry cloth spread ample amount of wood butter to all surfaces, including the edges.

5. Allow wood butter to be drawn into the board for a few hours, or overnight is better.

6. Polish your board with a clean dry cloth to bring out the luster, think polishing.
