United State Flag - Hardwood, epoxy inlaid union
Size is approximate due to the custom shape. Wide selections of different hardwoods in each and every handcrafted cutting board. After cutting and shaping, these everyday cutting boards are left in their natural wood state and finished with mineral oil and JDH Board Butter letting the beautiful natural colors of the hardwood shine through.
Sizing is approximate as these are all individually handcrafted.
Assorted woods used, for identification of woods visit JDHWoodworks.com or text a picture to 208-789-7165.
Put the board in the dishwasher. The heat and long exposure to water will warp and splinter the wood. The only cutting boards suitable for the dishwasher are plastic, composite or glass boards. This is true for ALL cutting boards.
Submerge/dunk/let sit in any type of standing water or liquid. The wood will absorb the water and lead to potential warping
Use bleach, this may stain the wood and will excessively dry the wood.
Put a wet cutting board flat to dry. When a wet cutting board dries on one side, it can cause the wood to warp.
Cleaning and care
Wash your cutting board with warm water and soap and scrub well. Using a high volume of water and scrubbing is more important than the soap as the water is flushing any food or bacteria off of the board under the running water. After washing, IMMEDIATELY towel dry and place on a wire rack or on it’s edge to dry thoroughly.
Always towel dry your cutting board after washing and place on it’s edge to dry thoroughly. This allows your board to dry evenly and prevents many issues that arise from excessive moisture trapped in the board.
Board Butter is a mixture of food safe mineral oil and bees wax. The bees wax we use is sourced locally from bee keepers and helps to seal and condition your cutting board. Just like your skin, a cutting board needs some moisturizing from time to time. In general, when your board starts to look dry (or monthly) apply a light coat of Board Butter to keep your cutting board looking like new. This applies to any cutting board you may already have as well, rub in some Board Butter and see the difference.
